3 Key Consulting is hiring a Business Analyst Senior Associate for a consulting engagement with our direct client, a leading global biopharmaceutical company.

Job Description:
Project Description and Scope:
The Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) project is one of four workstreams under the larger Evolving Financial Management at client Program. The CLM project will establish a new contract generation through contract storage solution for procurement agreements with capabilities for Global Strategic Sourcing (GSS) to track Obligation and Contract Compliance Management for these agreements. Consideration is also being given to moving Enterprise non-clinical Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) request, generation, workflow, and eSignature to this solution. The decision to move CDAs to the new solution will be based on the success of the initial phase of the CLM effort and the viability of the overall solution.

The CLM solution will also provide an opportunity to establish a new contract negotiation workflow that will allow interaction between Law, GSS and the external party for contract negotiations. This will include the integration of existing fall back language in Law’s Contract Negotiation guide and a contract review capability to identify areas of interest between the baseline and redlined version of the negotiated contracts. The contract review capability is also being evaluated for use of comparing non-procurement (e.g., Clinical) agreement baseline templates to redlined versions of contracts from suppliers with the intent to enable a more automated review of terms in negotiated agreements for other Law contracting teams.
