Contract Administration

There is no doubt that the construction industry is heavy on contract administration. Many contracts have to be drawn up at the commencement of a project with all contracts requiring administration throughout their life cycle.

Construction contracts can be a maze of clauses, difficult to understand terminology and risk allocation profiles.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

A contract is set of agreed on rules, or clauses, that legally bind a set of parties together to achieve the goal of the contract. In construction, a contract is commonly between the main contractor and a subcontractor. For instance, the main contractor building for a client may require some work to be completed by a subcontractor, such as the plumbing. So, in order for the main contractor and the plumber to know what is expected in the course of completing the work, the parties have to agree on a set of rules, or clauses to govern them.
Contract Administration is the task of applying those agreed on rules, throughout the duration of the contract. Basically, certain items of the contract need to be completed for the contract to work properly within the agreed rules or clauses. Such as, compiling all the information to get paid by a certain date, or applying agreed rules or clauses around additional work to be completed, called a variation to the contract.
Contract Management is an individual who manages more than one contract at a time, or maybe manages a team of Contract Administrators. Many construction companies and subcontractors will have multiple contracts on each project with some companies also handling multiple projects. This could lead to hundreds of unique contracts that will need to be administered to the strict rules and clauses within each of them.
