Risk Management in Contracts

It is important to capture all potential risks in a project and undertake all necessary actions or make provisions for eliminating or preventing them from occurring. Alternatively, the effects of risk may be reduced and allocated to the party best prepared for managing them. This requires a systematic approach to risk management.
