I have been tasked with implementing document control for my organisation. The structure is roughly:

Department 1 - Contract 1 - Contract 2 - Contract 3

Department 2 - Contract 1 - Contract 2 - Contract 3

In regards to Sharepoint sites, am I right in saying that I should implement a site per department then subsites for each contract within each department?

I feel there may be some better, 'built-in' way of building this very typical company stucture. Assigning permissions in particular seems a bit of a headache with this approach.

Actually, breaking departments down into subsites will make security much more easier, giving you better control.

As for having the contracts as subsites, that would depend on your security requirements - if you need to strictly control security between contracts then I would also make those subsites.
