New ways to improve how your contracts perform
Addressing technical, commercial and legal imperatives seamlessly
Robust principles for risk allocation under any delivery model
Inputs to high-performing contracts
Contracts address a broad range of issues, each important in its own way. From your perspective, the paramount issue is ensuring your contract accurately captures your ‘scope of work’ as agreed and priced by you.
Your ‘scope of work’ comprises everything you must do, price, program and provide for. It can be found throughout the contract documents, not just in the technical sections. Defining and limiting it in contractual terms requires a combination of technical, legal and commercial inputs.
Prodest works with your team in a co-ordinated, multi-disciplinary approach. We help you prepare a response and negotiate a contract that meets your business and operating imperatives.
And we never lose sight of the primacy of your ‘scope of work’.
