Actually...... The percentage that it shows for contracts isnt for how many units are signed for/needed.... It is instead what you pay for the products compared to what you would pay market price... The first number I believe is what you would pay at 100% Market Price, the second what you are actually paying.
1) If you have a trade contract for 10K (All your corps needs in a month lets say) at a price of 2000 with a Quality of 100 while the market price is 2000.... Your getting 100% of what you need and it will show 100% because you are paying 100% of what it would cost you on the market.
2) If you have a trade contract for 10K Service at a price of 2000 and a Quality of 200 while the market price is 2000... Your getting 100% of what you need but it will show only 200% because your only paying 200% of what it would cost you at the market rate.
3) If you have a trade contract for 10K Service at a price of 3000 and a Quality of 200 while the market price is 2000.... Your getting 100% of what you need but it will show 250% because your paying 250% percent of what it would cost you at market rate.
So in conclusion... That screen is worthless to check and see if your getting 100% of your needed supplies, you'll have to do that manually. It is good however to see how good a deal/bad a deal you have going. You should expect to usually be over 100% for quality adjustment reasons unless it is an old contract on something that is always in demand; Services for example.

Hope that helps, it messed with my head at first too untill I figured out W3s thinking. There should be 2 lists, one for Percent of Supplies Received and one for Cost of Supplies Received in my opinion.
