Successful contract administration ensures that both parties fulfill their contractual obligations — and adapt to changing circumstances when necessary. No matter which side of the contract you're on — government official or vendor — a firm grasp of contract procedures and legal requirements is essential for sound management and dispute resolution.

Administration of Government Contracts, written by experts from The George Washington University Law School Government Contracts Program, provides expert guidance on all phases of the contract administration process.
