Contract and Commercial Risk Services

Are your contracts costing you almost a tenth of your revenue? The International Association for Contract & Commercial Management (IACCM) has found that contract and commercial management weaknesses cost companies the equivalent of 9% of annual revenue. Using third parties to deliver business critical services and programmes is a fundamental reality of doing business. However, most organisations struggle to realise the expected value from these relationships.

Getting the right contracts in place on both the buy and sell side will give you a competitive advantage. But, you will need a robust, commercially-focused governance framework to manage these throughout their lifecycle.
