Once the contract has been awarded and signed between the parties, it is important to ensure that the contracted works need to be delivered for their intended purpose. This is where the contract administration comes into place to monitor the contracted works or services which must be effectively delivered.

Contract administration includes the activities needed to implement and determine the fulfillment of the contract requirements by the parties of the contract. The contracted works are a team effort that involves all the contractual parties working towards the common goal of delivering the completed works ready for their intended use.

The basic responsibilities of the parties are generally stipulated within the contract documents. Depending on the project deliverables, the selection of procurement route may differ. The role of the contract administrator does not begin until the contract is in place between the parties. However, in practice, such roles will begin before the existence of the contract.
