The managers of manufacturing firms in Rwanda especially the ones involved in the procurement processes of SKOL Rwanda Limited should adopt adequate contract management techniques by fostering open contract negotiation between the procurement unit and the suppliers. Both parties involved in procurement process should enter into agreement after understanding the terms of contract and finally both parties involved in the procurement contract should put in place the mechanisms that help them to monitor contract compliance and establish mechanisms for disputes resolutions so that the relationship between the suppliers and manufacturing might be well managed.
