The DCP Contract Management framework (PDF, 1.0 MB) has been developed to support a consistent approach to contract management and is now available for service providers to access.

About the framework

The framework describes the required responsibilities associated with the 3 phases of the contract management life cycle.

  • Phase 1 - Contract set up (how to initiate and plan the contract management process).
  • Phase 2 - Contract management (how to administer and manage contracts).
  • Phase 3 - Contract close-out (how to close and transition contracts).

The framework helps to support a consistent approach in the way the department manages contracts and access to supporting tools and resources that are easy to use.

It also ensures that governance, financial management and service delivery mechanisms are in place so contract management services can be delivered effectively and efficiently.
