Contract Lifecycle Management

Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) is defined as managing the full lifecycle of any contract, financial or non-financial, beyond execution and throughout the life of the entire contract.


At inception of policies going live the University strategy is to streamline the review process electronically through a single point of entry. The long term goal is to sustain a streamlined review and electronic approval process through a self-service contracts model. Benefits to managing the review process and life-cycle of University contracts will be reduced risks, improved total contract value, and built-in reporting to effectively manage timely renewals or termination of contracts.


Often it is not until there is a breach, penalty, fee, or fine imposed that we assess the importance of effectively managing the lifecycle of a all contracts, whether money is involved.
