In terms of a construction contract, what exactly does a Contract Administrator do?

A

Put very simply, the Contract Administrator (CA) is the person or organisation who is appointed to oversee and manage the terms of a contract. Their duties and responsibilities will typically include the issuing of instructions, certificates and notices that are necessary for the smooth operation of the contract itself.
