What is the role of a contract administrator?

A contract administrator will over see the contractual elements of a project, from formalising a specification and tender package, tendering works in a compliant manner, and discharging the contractual obligations between the contractor and client throughout the duration of the contract works. This will often involve inspection of works to approve payments to the contractor and signing off completion of the project.

What is the difference between a Contract Administrator and a Project Manager?

A contract administrator will generally complete only tasks which relate to the contractual agreements, whereas a Project Manager will manage a team of consultants, coordinate design work and will often provide more detailed reporting on overall project matters. A project manager is normally involved when a project is of high value and complex in nature, usually with multiple designers and consultants involved. They may also complete contract administration duties, but on larger projects this may be completed by the project QS or architect.

Can I be my own Project Manager or Contract Administrator?

A company may have a suitably competent employee in house able to take on these responsibilities, but often the technical and legal understanding of construction works, and construction contracts needed is too specialist and it becomes prudent to involve experienced specialists to protect your interests.
