Spend vs contract

Did you get invoiced (and therefore pay) more than was agreed in the contract?

This is a real pain point for larger companies and government projects.

Why hasn’t this been solved?

Although spend is kept in a structured database, contracted rates are not. They’re part of the contract which is probably a PDF rotting in a SharePoint folder somewhere.

Until you build a contract database and capture the data and logic around fees, reconciling your spend vs the contract is going to be very tough.
