Contract and Commercial Risk Services

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. Reliance on third parties to deliver business critical services and programmes is a fundamental reality of today’s business world, but clearly most organisations struggle to realise the value expected from these relationships.

You will gain a competitive advantage if you can get the right contracts in place on both the buy and sell side. You will also need a robust, commercially-focused governance framework to manage these throughout their lifecycle.

We employ an evidence and data-driven approach, coupled with a deep understanding of commercial contracts to unlock value and insight to help you deliver against your strategic third party objectives and drive better commercial outcomes.
