Contract risks in business relationships are any uncertainties about the future that threaten the ability to accomplish a contract's mission. They can emanate from both parties or even from a third party. So, in the management of contracts note should be taken that risks are shifting from a compliance “management” to a “governance” perspective. It is always important to ensure that contract conditions and terms are met.
