Thanks I already looked at that, but it didnt provide me the answers.
ps. we already have Onit and Apptus (perhaps that tool could help, but really have a very large amount of contract templates) and no time and money for new tools. I am not looking for software tools, but more for best practices.
Hello, again. The IACCM's Automation Report and the on-line selection tool, developed by IACCM in association with Capgemini, involve a review of products from every corner of the world. Then the aim of the report and of the associated website is to provide high-quality, objective guidance that simplifies SELECTION procedures for everyone
I understand your research criteria. You have said 'I am not looking for software tools, but more for best practices' and you´re right.
Feel free to explore more in our library (and also to connect and register to our IACCM networks to get in direct touch with players in this field) and you´ll find multiple examples of best practices regarding automation tools:
Hi - this issue of keeping a basic form that has local variations is difficult. If you want to be on the cutting (bleeding) edge, you could try the approach that CommonAccord.org is working through with the IACCM. It organizes materials into forms and clauses, and assembles them into unlimited variations. There is a learning curve and only very simple tools, but it can handle the task and could make you part of an IACCM collaboration on maintaining templates. I'm now on the iACCM Council and hoping to accelerate this initiative. Jim -
Thanks for the feedback. For the avoidance of doubt I am not looking for automation tools or how to manage different versions of one template in various languages (etc). I am wondering about a whole set of contract templates and standard terms, how do you make sure that the governance and maintenance of the documents is maintained? How does it work in practice? It is nice to have a tool to help you, but who owns the tool and keeps it up-to-date? Do you do that by uploading it in a tool and allowing only the use of the tool for the creation of agreements? How about feedback on the clauses, how does it work, how do people provide feedback on the clauses and the acceptance by the customers/counterparts? Changing law requirements? Do you have a yearly review and new release or more often? How do you receive the feedback, how do you track the feedback? What was the way before automation? How would you do that? (nb. I need something now and Apptus is not ready yet and buying a new tool would take a long procurement process :-) ).
These are superb questions. I'd like to expand on them. May I borrow them? A lot of this is process, and I'd love to hear from people who have experience with these processes. Here are some thoughts and examples of how this could become an IACCM collaboration - www.commonaccord.org/index.php
May I borrow these?
1. Who owns the tool and keeps it up-to-date?
2. Do you do that by uploading it in a tool and allowing only the use of the tool for the creation of agreements?
3. How about feedback on the clauses, how does it work, how do people provide feedback on the clauses and the acceptance by the customers/counterparts?
4. Changing law requirements?
5. Do you have a yearly review and new release or more often?
6. How do you receive the feedback, how do you track the feedback?
7. What was the way before automation? How would you do that?
Of course James!
Thanks! I've posted your list of questions as an "Issue" on the Model Contracting Policy repository on GitHub. A half-measure at best, but a start. I'll start giving or referencing some thoughts about it in the near future.
Kerri - I've send you a message with some thoughts on this. Feel free to reach out any time - thanks, Tom
