The purpose of this work is to present some (local and global) fixed point results for singlevalued and multivalued generalized contractions on spaces endowed with vector-valued metrics. The results are extensions of some theorems given by Perov (1964), Bucur et al. (2009), M. Berinde and V. Berinde (2007), O'Regan et al. (2007), and so forth.
