Preparation and Review of Contract Documents
Contract documents vary in their type, nature and complexity depending upon the type of work to be undertaken or the services to be provided. The range includes contracts for:
- Major works
- Minor works
- Period works or services
- Panel works or services
- Supply of materials
Contracts terms may also vary, with both fixed price and prime cost contract options available. Selecting the right contract type and contract terms is often critical to a Principal’s organisation and the ultimate success of a contract.
Contract Control International (CCI) has specialist consultants who can advise on all aspects of contract documentation preparation and review based on experience gained from a wide range of contractual situations.
Preparation and review
A contract is normally formed from several separate documents which collectively comprise the contract between the parties. Consultants can advise on all aspects of contract document preparation and review including advice on the following:
- Forms of tender
- General conditions of contract
- Supplementary and/ or special conditions of contract
- Scopes of work
- Drawings and specifications
- Pricing schedules
- Formal instruments of agreement
Advice can also be provided on the structure of the precedence of documents clause in the contract, ensuring risks associated with inconsistencies and ambiguities between contract documents are minimised.
