SpectrumCLM: The only COTS built solution specifically designed to manage government contracts

SpectrumCLM™ is a Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) solution built specifically for government contractors who must comply with extensive federal and agency-specific regulations.

While SpectrumCLM provides support for typical contract activities in the commercial sector, it is uniquely capable of dealing with the requirements associated with federal contracts.   Unlike commercial contracts, federal contracts are never on the “company’s paper” but rather are necessarily on “government paper.”   Like so many things that touch the government’s regulated processes, government contracts carry an unparalleled degree of compliance risk and associated penalties for non-compliance.   SpectrumCLM’s core capability is focused on accurately recording a government contract and capturing all of the regulations and requirements over the contract’s lifecycle.

SpectrumCLM showcases a data model that is rich in support of federal contracts and their extensive auditing requirements; libraries of regulatory clause data; flexible and rule-based workflows; and an ability to adapt to ever-changing realities of contract and subcontract management and the endless variety of contract situations that must be captured and managed.

  • FAR, DFARS and agency supplement libraries (including historical) always kept up-to-date
  • Contract brief built to DCAA requirements
