Example text

Few civil engineering contracts handled in this manner need settlement by resort to arbitration or a court of law. A project manager holds a different appointment from the independent engineer described above. 2(f). He may carry out many similar duties as the engineer under the traditional form of contract, but he is not fully independent. The specific content of the contract will define the limit of his powers to act independently. Decisions made by the project manager on matters that are subject to assent by the employer will commit the employer, who will not be able to dispute them.

Some of the principal differences are the following: 9 The employer sets out his required standards and performance objectives for both design and construction in a document entitled 'the Employer's Requirements'. 9 The Contractor develops these requirements and designs and constructs the Works in accordance with them. 9 The Contractor is responsible for all design matters except any specifically identified in the Contract to be done by others. 9 An 'Employer's Representative' is appointed who supervises the design and construction on behalf of the employer to ensure compliance with the Requirements and that the purpose of the works will be met.

Payment terms have to define which costs are reimbursable and which are covered by any lump sum payments. Payment is made on the basis of the estimated expenditure for the forthcoming month, subject to adjustment of the preceding month's payment according to the actual expenditure incurred. This amounts to payment in advance. A project manager administers the contract but he does not have a fully independent status, although he is required to act impartially in some matters. The purchaser is responsible for the actions of the project manager and cannot dispute his decisions.
