Contract Management Guide Purpose

Each agency is unique and requirements of each contract vary, therefore, the information in the CMG is intended to be applied as appropriate, and not mechanically. The CMG provides a framework that agencies should use to make contracting decisions that are in the best interest of the State.

The CMG describes the primary duties of a contract manager, including how to develop and negotiate a contract, select a contractor, and monitor contractor and subcontractor performance.

The CMG is designed to be a supplement to existing statutory contracting requirements and individual agency rules, policies and procedures. Each agency is independently responsible for developing sound business procedures in accordance with applicable federal and state laws, regulations, policies and procedures.
