When conducting contract review, how do you deem a job low, medium or high risk? we use an excel form in which we calculate different steps , however its outdated and looking for fresh ideas to change it up. at our contract review we go over our inside processes (Heading, roll threading, grinding) and outside processes (heat treatment, grinding, plating, passivating) but are still missing critical steps to point out or take extra precautions. your suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.

Bryan,

The purpose of contract review is to review the requirements, terms and conditions before providing a price; a long time before you have a contract.

Inherently it is a matter of assessing the risks without necessarily mentioning risk at all.

A. Do we understand the requirements?
B. Can we fulfill the requirements?
C. Do we want to submit a proposal/quote?

Each of these is a question answered with a Yes or No unless we answer A or B with a No. Together the answers to these questions amount to an assessment of the opportunity and its risks.

Guessing auditors are looking for specific RM techniques wastes time and “risk based thinking” can make it worse unless we appreciate what we already do.

Best wishes,

John
