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.

Consideration must also be given to Planning, Sustainable Procurement and Risk Management throughout this stage of the Procurement Journey.
