Define the need Manage the risk Control the spend

Contora focuses on spend risk management throughout the contract lifecycle, enhancing supply chain performance, reducing risk, and delivering earned value using our unique active contracts.

Inert contracts add no value during execution.

Over 83% of Project Managers believe that traditional Statements of Work (SOW) cause delays during project planning, and add little to no value during the delivery and execution phases.

"Delays to project during drafting and review."

"Lack of operational value during execution phase."

"Only 'adds' value when the project has failed or is in dispute."

The effortless option. The active contract.

For Project, Finance and Procurement Professionals looking to efficiently create and share detailed project scopes while ensuring governance during execution:

Contora  places the active contract at the centre of the project plan, keeps spending aligned with the Purchase Order, and ensures that everyone in the supply chain is operating from a single source of truth throughout the execution.

That means plans match budgets, works orders and fees match invoices for:

  • Transparency and fairness across the supply chain with each partner giving and receiving their value.
  • Avoiding unbudgeted project spend, reconciliation headaches, and approval workflow hangovers!

Frequently Asked Questions

A SOW is a document that outlines the scope, objectives, deliverables, and timeline of a project or engagement between a client and a service provider.
