Contract management is a challenging, fulfilling career with competitive salary potential and unlimited opportunity for professional growth.
Contract managers work on both sides of the purchasing chain–and jobs are available within the federal government, commercial industry, academia, and more.
Contract managers use a broad set of business skills to analyze risk, price, and terms of contracts. They must be competent in contract law, administration, accounting, psychology, management, and planning.
