This assignmentis worth 50% of the total assessment for EG595B.
For this assignment you have two options:
- Using a major contract which is either now complete or near completion/or has been running for a long time and is in your own organisation – apply the Contract Life Management (CLM) framework and identify what has worked/is working with your organisation’s contract management, what didn’t work and what lessons can be learnt. For contracts that have not completed, identify risks with any future stages and what should be in place, and if you can, evaluate the risk mitigation strategy proposed (if it is available), or suggest what mitigating actions could be taken. Remember the first half of this module and look for any observations concerning how the contract has developed in execution and the contract terms and conditions.
- Use a high-profile contract with plenty of information in the public domain and is either now complete or near completion/or has been running for a long time – apply the Contract Life Management (CLM)framework and identify what has worked/is working, what didn’t work and what lessons can be learnt. For contracts that have not completed, identify risks with any future stages and what should be in place, evaluate the risk mitigation strategy proposed (if it is available), or suggest what mitigating actions could be taken. Major contracts like those with the architect for the Scottish Parliament, construction of the 2012 Olympics, HS2 or British Library are examples of projects with significant data in the public domain. If you can, find out what standard form of contract was used, and consider whether this had any impact on the successes or issues encountered.
