How to show value of contract scoring

Our contracting team has developed a scoring model to rate the overall compliance of a potential contract with standard contract language guidelines provided by our legal department. By scoring a contract before and after negotiations, we can show the improvements our professional negotiators have achieved in the contract. What I am looking for is a way to show the monetary value of those improvements. Can anyone recommend any ideas on this subject?


Blockchain and Contract Lifecycle Management

Has anyone seen the most practical use-cases implemented using blockchain? There are enough in the supply chain areas and logic suggests deliverable & Obligation Management for complex flow-down contracts/interconnected contracts should see a hearty implementation of blockchain solutions, but still to find a realistic implementation - maybe something exists in the permissioned 9Public/private) space.

We received an RFQ from a potential Client for the provision of technical services on a medium-term basis ; the Client is asking a proposal indicating all the major costs elements for us and our markup, to sum up a total unit rate (different items are involved, similar structure). They are a major international industrial Group, we know their commercial approach will not be collaborative. We are not comfortable in providing our costs structure and markup, so ultimately our margin. I am looking for a way for a soft refusal, but we want to quote. Did you have a similar experience? Any advice? Thanks!
