Reston, VA, September 19, 2023 – HERNDON, Va., September 19, 2023 – SMX®, a trusted contractor in advanced technology solutions, proudly announces its adoption of the National Contract Management Association's (NCMA) Contract Management Standard (CMS™). This strategic move underscores SMX's unwavering dedication to fostering profession-wide best practices, contracting principles, terminology, processes, and cultivating professional career development within the field.
The NCMA Contract Management Standard serves as a global language for contract management professionals across various industries and organizations. It provides thought-leading organizations, like SMX, a unified framework to articulate and discuss contract management phases, domains, competencies, and skills. As SMX incorporates the CMS as a cornerstone of its corporate Quality Management System, customers can expect enhanced contract management services, increased operational efficiency, and a more transparent and streamlined experience throughout their contract lifecycle.
"SMX takes immense pride in being an early adopter of CMS, a testament to our commitment to delivering unparalleled service to both our internal stakeholders and valued clients," remarked Rick Schutz, Vice President, Corporate Counsel at SMX. "This adoption reflects our pursuit of excellence in every facet of contract management."
Kraig Conrad, Chief Executive Officer of NCMA, emphasized, “the SMX adoption of the CMS™ embodies our unwavering pursuit of a common language for contract management across organizations and around the world.”
With the integration of the CMS into the frameworks of Federal Acquisition Certification in Contracting (FAC-C) and the Department of Defense framework (DAWIA), SMX's embrace of the NCMA CMS aligns seamlessly with the evolving landscape of contract management. As SMX embarks on this transformative journey, they look forward to not only exceeding their customers' expectations but also contributing to the evolution and standardization of contract management practices worldwide.
