In this paper we present several solutions to the problem of designing and implementing a contract monitoring facility as part of a larger cross-organisational contract management architecture. We first identify key technical requirements for such a facility and then present our contract language and architecture that address key aspects of the requirements. The language is based on a precise model for the expression of behaviour and policies in the extended enterprise and it can be used to build models for a particular enterprise contract environment. These models can be executed by a contract engine that is part of an overall contract architecture that supports the contract management life cycle at both the contract establishment and contract execution phases. Our solution makes extensive use of the existing open standards.
