Contract Management, a monthly, full-color magazine, is NCMA’s number-one member benefit. Not only do members receive this publication each month, they also can access past articles of interest in our archives. (Please note that articles only go back to 2002.)
Written and edited specifically for contract management professionals, and established in 1977, CM is NCMA’s flagship publication, providing comprehensive reporting on current issues and trends relevant to both public and private sectors.
Editorial is presented from both government and commercial viewpoints. CM articles keep readers on top of late-breaking developments. Editorial "departments" present opinion pieces, information for beginners and for legal scholars, information for small businesses, as well as rich and varied feature material.
