Contract Management System

The UR Contract Management system, provided by ESM Solutions, has robust contract management functionality. It provides individuals who manage contracts for their divisions or units with an automated workflow that ensure their contracts are appropriately written, reviewed and approved.

Once a contract has been executed, the system will generate automatic reminders to the contract manager regarding key aspects of the contract or related records. For example, it will generate reminders when the renewal period for the contract is approaching or when certificates of insurance or other required documents must be updated.

By maintaining all University contracts in a central repository, users across campus can access contracts that fulfill a common need, such as rental car or office supply agreements. This allows the campus community to more readily identify vendors with whom the University has preferred relationships, which allows the University to leverage its combined purchasing power in negotiating future arrangements.
