To manage contracts effectively requires a systematic approach and the discipline to stick to it over time.

The rewards for doing it well are reduced costs, an engaged and consolidated supplier base, better compliance and a more collaborative workforce.

Using templates and tools to help with this process can be a good approach and can help you keep track of your contract and vendor relationships.

If you’re not yet ready to implement a contract management software in your business, then we’ve prepared a range of contract templates to help you structure your approach.

Contract Management Excel Templates


To help you get started, we’ve created a single Excel sheet containing 13 different templates, covering different aspects of the contract lifecycle. These include:

  • A contract inventory sheet
  • A risk register
  • Issue and Dispute Logs
  • Plus many more

These can be populated straight away or adapted to your own requirements.
