Route 3 - Contract Implementation
This section of the Procurement Journey outlines the process and activities associated with implementing a new contract which ensures:
- supplier(s) have all the information they require to plan the migration of users to the contract
- Organisations have all the information they require to use the contract e.g. suppliers’ contact details, information on the goods/services available from the contract
- continuity of supply
Contract implementation consists of two distinct phases:
- Migration - facilitating the movement of organisations to a new contract post 'go-live'
- Mobilisation - the process of moving from contract award to 'go-live', i.e. the point when a user can actually buy from the contract
NB Some steps in the process may be done concurrently.
This mobilisation process is a guide to help plan activities between contract award and go live. The timescales for each of the stages should be amended to reflect your own specific procurement exercise.
