A Contract Analyst exists to assist the Solutions Team in securing new, additional and renewal business. For example, once a prospect/customer has communicated its interest in securing such a relationship contractually, a Contract Analyst will work with the Solutions Team until such contract is effected. This entails gathering data such as terms, conditions and operational descriptions, securing pricing and credit, working with PTL to secure equipment leases and literally writing a contract for legal review and subsequently, the
customer's signature. A Contract Analyst is also responsible for communicating any such new, add or renewal business to the organization so that a customer's internal records for billing, accounting and the like are set up accordingly. Similarly, a Contract Analyst is also responsible for tracking and documenting (in the contract) all operational adjustments and communicating such adjustments to the organization so that internal records are kept up-to-date.
