Remember when it comes to contracts, it’s not about your own thoughts and assumptions; it’s about what is written!
What has caused changes to industry standard contract clauses? Allocation of risk often gets modified in contract clauses based on Project Owners or their lawyers’ past experiences. The issue with modifications to contract clauses is the lack of understanding of what these clauses mean and associated risks to Project Owners, Consultants, Contractors and other Stakeholders when they are changed.
When contract clauses are modified these risks materialize:
- disputes arise,
- relationships are damaged,
- project costs can increase,
- schedules can be compromised,
- bidders can jeopardize their businesses
- the potential for litigation increases
It’s critical to be aware that in the nuances of the prime contract clauses, there are implications and requirements impacting all partners including the Consultants and Subcontractors.
What Will You Learn?
By the end of this course you'll learn:
- WHAT the risks are in CCDC, CCA and provincial standard contracts that have been modified by supplementary conditions,
- WHY these clauses are modified, and
- COSTS associated with these clauses
This course takes a practical, hands-on approach to learning. Your instructors will lead you through interactive exercises to examine several non-standard contract clauses, giving you an opportunity to apply what is discussed in class.
This course will review supplementary conditions modified from CCDC 2, 5A, 5B, 14, 15, CCA 1 and provincial standard contracts.
