The responsibility of managing all contracts rests with the contracting department or organisation. The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) is working with departments on a number of initiatives to help them improve procurement and project management skills and capability; the negotiation, agreement and subsequent management of contracts; and the improved management of projects defined in those contracts. In particular, the OGC is working closely with colleagues in the Cabinet Office to ensure that a greater number of ICT contracts are fulfilled within time and budget.
