ManTech International, a provider of technologies and services for national security programs, has licensed Selectica’s Contract Performance Management application.
ManTech is integrating Selectica’s Contract Performance Management (CPM) contract lifecycle management platform to help manage defense and government contracts for its customers including agencies within the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security, as well as various contracts with vendors and subcontractors to deliver secure IT services.
In addition to managing its contracts, including tracking contractual changes and managing contract archiving, ManTech plans to use Selectica CPM to manage pre-contract processes as well, such as managing Request for Proposals (RFPs) and proposals, tracking for conflicts of interest with other business units, and qualifying and managing subcontractor relationships.
ManTech plans to use Selectica CPM to help track an engagement from the initial phases through the proposal process to contract award and closeout. This management process also includes all subcontractor relationships. By integrating contract management into the RFP process, ManTech can establish business rules and conditions from the outset. Customized questionnaires make it easy to map business rules to RFPs and Selectica CPM can manage workflow and approval processes as well.
ManTech also plans to use Selectica CPM’s hierarchical and relational structure to track individual contractor agreements and manage rules that flow down the value chain to subcontractors, as required by Federal Acquisition Regulations (FARs) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation (DFARs). This flow down aspect is critical to government contracts because they often involve multiple subcontractors, as well as second-tier subcontractors, all of whom must comply with the overarching regulations of the prime contract.
