Howard Community College to Centralize, Streamline Contract Management with JAGGAER
Up until recently Howard Community College was using a manual, paper-based contract system. With a school that has more than 30,000 students, plus staff, plus contractors and vendors, that creates a mountain of paperwork to manage via manila folders and filing cabinets. The HCC team knew they needed an online system to manage the overwhelming number of contracts, provide the ability to track expiration dates and ensure compliance.
“By streamlining the process and creating a central repository where all contracts are visible and searchable, we can keep track of what contracts we have, when they expire, and who executed the contract,” said Elizabeth Moss, director of procurement at Howard Community College.
“The technology also allows us to build templates, clause libraries, and standard contract language that will make our contracting process smoother and more efficient, and decrease the potential liability for HCC,” she adds.
Total Contract Manager is built to streamline the contract management workflow through better collaboration from authoring to approval. It helps eliminate potential risks and errors and provides real-time updates to help manage the process.
“We are proud to assist Howard Community College in serving its students and employees by providing a cost-effective and efficient contract management solution. They join the many schools that have made JAGGAER the leading eProcurement solutions provider in education for over 22 years,” says JAGGAER CEO Robert Bonavito.
