Abstract:

A research study was conducted to examine the methods being used by selected Federal agencies, State Departments of Transportation, and Cities to address time in their contract documents. The data for this study was obtained by review of construction contract general provisions as provided by the various contracting offices. This study examines the general conditions provisions of various owners, compares and analyzes each type of clause, and makes recommendations on fairness of the clause to both parties to the contract. The information derived from this study can be used as reference material by those agencies in the process of, or contemplating, revising their current contract documents concerned with time in construction contracting.
