What does a Contract Administrator do?

Contract Administrators oversee contracts on behalf of an organisation and ensure that goods and services are delivered according to the agreement. They are often assigned to large projects — especially when working in the building and construction industry.

As a Contract Administrator you could be supervising sub-contractors and checking the quality of their work, liaising with contracting companies to ensure their schedules are met, checking supplier invoices against contract prices, or discussing a contract breach with the Project Manager and CEO.
