Since some time ago many Contract Managers have looked to diversify from their traditional role and offer their employers other services, such as project management and construction management. These roles are evolving within the construction industry and as a result the Contract management function is being diversified and must make sure the functions expected from Contract Managers for clear understanding of their scope.

Therefore, when a Contracts Manager takes on a management role it is important to clearly define the scope of service to be provided and also be aware of the standards expected from within the industry and from various professional bodies as this may have an impact on what terms may be implied in an agreement between anĀ  employer and Contract Manager.
