Western Australian Contract Management Framework Principles

The Western Australian Contract Management Framework (WACMF) Principles identify the different elements required to ensure good practice contract management within existing WA public sector guidelines. They focus on what is required of an agency and of contract managers.

For agencies, the WACMF Principles are intended to help guide the whole-of-agency approach to contract management. This includes guidance on the appropriate level of governance, integration within the agency, what strategies to use when managing contracts and ensuring contractor performance.

For contract managers, the WACMF Principles provide guidance on applying the appropriate effort, adopting good practice and actively managing contracts. They are applicable to full time contract managers and officers for whom contract management is only part of their role.
