The “contract for the agreed price” format (CCDC 2 – 2008) is used by the owner in combination with a separate consulting contract (i.e. the standard owner`s consulting contract for engineers, either standard industry models such as ACEC 31 – 2010 for engineers or raic 6 – 2017 for architects), under which the services provided by the planning advisors and the owner`s sub-advisors for the provision of project planning and contract management services remain at the owner`s expense during the construction phase. The Construction Management Contract for Services (CCDC 5A – 2010) format is established by the owner and site manager, in conjunction with the contract agreed price contract for contractors for construction management projects (CCDC 17 – 2010) and in connection with a separate contract, Parallel project consulting contract, under which the services provided by the owner`s advisor for the provision of project planning and contract management services are maintained (either the standard owner`s consulting contract for engineers, or standard models such as ACEC 31 – 2010 for engineers or RAIC 6 – 2017 for architects). CCDC 29 — A CCDC 29 pre-qualification guide provides owners and purchasing agencies with advice on best purchasing practices for the pre-qualification process to find companies that will be working on their construction projects. It is a guide that can be used primarily for the pre-qualification of contractors, but the concepts and principles also apply to the pre-qualification of consultants, site managers, subcontractors and builders, among others. CCDC 29 presents the different types of pre-qualification processes, including an open competitive pre-qualification process, an invitation pre-qualification process and a pre-qualification process, to establish a list of sources of companies likely to carry out the work. The document goes even further by also providing a checklist of items to be considered in pre-qualification documents. CCDC 29 also provides examples of documents, for example. B an ad example, an invitation letter and an evaluation form.
When seeking guidelines, owners and procurement authorities should ensure that CCDC 29 is intended to guide and ensure that they have taken into account the guidelines, the purchase of statutes, directives and/or trade agreements that bind them. For the compliance of commercial contracts, the use of this format is most appropriate in combination with a pre-qualification procedure, in particular a supplier qualification contract (RFSQ) – a framework agreement that defines the process of awarding work for a list of several contractors who can deal with a downstream employment contract under the master`s agreement. Prices for these types of contracts can then be set on a price basis in downstream bidding procedures. Compared to the traditional contract (CCDC 2 – 2008), which requires the owner to manage the two contractors separately, the consolidation of the role of advisor and contractor in a project construction contract reduces the risk of disputes and disagreements between the planning consultant and the contractor during construction; However, this approach also removes a level of control and balance between these two roles, as the design consultant is no longer independent and directly with the owner. Like other models that involve the contractor in design discussions, the IPD model (AIA C191 – 2009) reduces the risk of disagreement between different contractors over design details during the construction phase; However, direct management of multiple contracts is also an increased risk and responsibility for the owner. These lists of master`s contracts should be established for a pre-defined period or with update procedures to include new contractors in the roll-up table and be accompanied by pre-qualification rules setting a maximum value for a given task, so that all employment contracts exceeding the maximum value can be awarded under the
