Contract Management Guide Background

The purpose of the CMG is to offer contract managers at state agencies recommendations on improving existing contract management processes and practices.

Pursuant to 2262.052, each state agency is required to comply with the CMG. Additionally, the SAO is required to periodically monitor for CMG compliance and report any non-compliance to the governor, the lieutenant governor, the speaker of the house of representatives and the Contract Advisory Team (CAT). As well as assist, in coordination with the TPASS and the CPA, a non-complying state agency to comply with the aforementioned section.

The CMG is not intended to be a manual on contract law nor does it contitute legal advice. General principles of law are discussed but are only general principles, inclusive of exceptions. A legal reference section provided at the end of the CMG provides general information regarding contracting issues within the contract management process. Consult your agency's attorney for legal advice concerning contracts.
