Records Retention and Contract Management

In an effort to empower individual departments, fully exectued documents should be both managed and stored on the departmental level. 

Contract management:

The process of managing agreement, from the time of creation through exectution. This includes ensuring that business terms are being performed by the vendor. 

Contract Retention:

Departments are required to maintain record of their contracts. The Office of the General Counsel suggests that these be stored in a box folder that is shared with multiple members of the departments staff.
