Course Overview

Many standard forms of contract are used in the construction contract administration & procurement of projects in the private and public sectors. Possessing a clear understanding of the standard forms available and their respective management and administration procedures will help mitigate risks, problems, and difficulties occurring from poor contract administration leading to unavoidable time delays, probable cost penalties, and potential disputes.

The commercial management and delivery of projects are guided by the construction contract and this targeted course will develop your ability to deliver your construction projects effectively.

This practical ZOE course is built around carefully designed case studies that emphasize what should happen, where people have gone wrong and best practices that you can apply. It aims to make sure your issues are identified, managed, and agreed upon within the limitations imposed by any agreement or contract.

Where the contract or agreement offers little or no guidance regarding claims or disputes, the course will discuss what alternatives are available, and how they should be implemented. The management of contract issues involves a number of steps that should be followed to make sure the best possible result is achieved. Therefore, the construction contract administration course will consider what information is essential to properly substantiate and justify entitlement.
