Eighty percent (80%) of the people managing construction contracts do not read, do not understand or are not following the construction contract in place between the two organizations. This creates problems for both the owner and the contractor as well as the other participants involved with the project (consultant, subcontractors, sub-subcontractors and suppliers).
The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) and the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) publishes standard contracts and guides for the construction industry.
In this course, the bidding process will be reviewed (Expression of Interest (EOI), Request for Qualifications (RFQ), Request for Proposals (RFP), Contract A, Contract B), the difference between a Letter of Intent and Letter of Award (one of which is simply an agreement to agree) and the terms and conditions of the CCDC-2 (2020) Stipulated Price Construction Contract.
