Contract Administration (or CA as it is often referred to) places responsibility for the administration of the contract with your appointed representative. Furthermore, that representative is also required to ensure that you – as the Employer – and your appointed contractor, each fulfil their obligations under the terms of the contract.

Having been appointed by you, the duties of the contract administrator include:

  • Preparing contract documents for execution
  • Administrating change control procedures
  • Seeking instructions from the client in relation to the contract
  • Issuing instructions such as variations and making good defects
  • Considering claims for extensions of time
  • Chairing construction progress meetings
  • Agreeing commissioning and testing procedures
  • Agreeing defects reporting procedures
  • Ensuring all project documentation is issued to the client
  • Issuing certificates of practical completion and interim certificates
  • Collating and issuing schedules of defects
  • Issuing the final certificate
