Strategic Contract Management System

State IT Innovation of the Year

The Virginia Department of Transportation’s new strategic contract management system has been “a game changer,” says Brian Kontur, program manager for the department’s Office of Public-Private Partnerships. “It’s intuitive for users,” Kontur says. “These contracts and these roles that VDOT is working with on the contracts, they can be hundreds of years old, so as people come and go, that can be a pain point in handing off that information.” He says the new system also uses low-code technology, making it easier for the commonwealth to maintain long-term.
