Contract administration is like flossing your teeth. Best to do it on a regular basis. If you skip it for a while you may not notice any pain right away, but you can bet that there will be pain later. A little time and money spent now prevents major expenditures down the road.

Kevin and Paul discuss the kinds of pain you can largely avoid through regular “contract hygiene” in this refresher of a previously released episode.
