Contract Administrator Jobs in Oakland, CA

Manage and assist with the development of contracts. Contract administrators monitor existing agreements to ensure that all involved parties fulfill their obligations. When new contracts or change orders are created, they are responsible for disseminating the necessary information to affected personnel and moving the documentation down the appropriate administrative channels.

Since contract administrators interact with employees from several different areas of the company, they must have effective communication skills. For example, they collaborate with project management teams to account for various costs and earnings as they relate to contracts held with suppliers and clients. Additionally, they may coordinate with acquisitions personnel to compose bid documents for new worksites.
