Within ConSol, a Contract is designed to be a reflection of a Contract already in existence and agreed to by the Customer and the Supplier. This allows Customers to improve spend compliance, maximise savings and ensure Supplier compliance for current and new Contracts.
A separate Contract is created in ConSol for each Schedule of works a Supplier provides for the Customer.
The contract in ConSol essentially defines the rules of engagement - it houses the contractually agreed Schedule of Rates (SOR), the clauses under which business is undertaken, the compliance requirements, the operational configuration for order management and the SLA & KPI settings. ConSol also stores and tracks documents relating to the contract, such as meeting minutes, policies and procedures, insurances, certifications or even a copy of the contract itself.
Clauses included in a Contract are automatically copied to all Orders generated under that Contract.
The Supplier's rates for each item on the Contract are maintained in ConSol by the Customer Commercial Contract Manager (CCM).
The Customer Compliance role is responsible for managing KPI's and managing supporting documentation and certifications for the Contract.
Contracts are viewable to Users with the following Roles:
- Technical Contract Manager
- Contract Administrator
However, only a Commercial Contract Manager is able to edit Contracts.
