    How do you manage NDAs in Ariba Contract Management?

    Chris St. John Apprentice

      We are interested in how organizations are using Ariba Contract Management for NDAs?

       

      They tend to have a high volume and often do not have format expiration dates. Currently we assign them as fixed with an expiration date set two years out.

          We created a template specifically for NDAs with only a few tasks. We track them as perpetual agreements (because in our case they are set up as perpetuals, most of the time) and record them also as sub-agreements when they are tied to a certain master agreement with that particular supplier. More precisely, what is the problem you are trying to address?

                Hi,

                 

                We wanted to do the same as you have described - create a separate template specific for NDA's but ran into an issue around our "required fields".  Because our original contract template had a number of "required fields", those same fields would be "required" on the NDA contract template.  Did you have to work around the same issue when creating your NDA template?

                    Lita,  I don't know if this helps, but the fields on the Create Contract Workspace (Procurement) can, under certain conditions, be configured.  So, let's say you have 4 fields:  Contract Type, Contract Amount, Sponsor and Region.  For a standard contract, all 4 are required.  Contract Type is a dropdown that contains a list of the different contract types, such as Software License, Professional Services, General Procurement, Non-Disclosure, etc.For a non-disclosure, only Document Type and Sponsor are required.   When the user selects Non-disclosure, Contract Amount and Region disappear from the screen and are, therefore, no longer required.  However, that being said, we could not, for example, change Region from required to not required based on the selection of the Contract Type.
