 The automation policies are configured to send the notifications to the system administrator by default. However, if you assign owners to all contracts, you might want the contract owner to be notified instead.

See Configuring contract expiration notification policy.

Warning:

To avoid a situation when a contract does not have an assigned owner, make the system administrator the default owner for all new contracts.

For more information, see the topics about setting the default values in the CMDB Solution Help.
