Contract negotiation is the process through which two or more parties deliberate over the contents of a contract to reach a legally binding agreement. The goal of contract negotiation is to come to an agreement that meets the needs of both parties. In order to achieve this, both parties must be willing to compromise and be open to discussing different options. Contract negotiation can be a difficult process, but it is important for both parties to remember that the goal is to reach an agreement.

Contract compliance is the process of ensuring that a company is living up to the terms of its contract. This can include making sure that the company is delivering on its promises, meeting deadlines, and not violating any terms of the agreement. Compliance officers are responsible for ensuring that contracts are being followed and often work with legal teams to ensure any potential issues are addressed. Contract compliance can be important for businesses large and small, as violations can lead to expensive lawsuits or other penalties. By taking steps to ensure compliance, businesses can protect themselves from these risks.
What is contract risk management? Contract risk management assesses a contract's maximum value through compliance tracking by identifying, managing, and minimizing the potential risks throughout the contract lifecycle.
