Employer’s Agent (generally referred to as EA) is the term used for someone appointed to act on your behalf and fulfil your obligations. Ideally, you appoint your Employer’s Agent as early as possible in the project life-cycle.

There are some parallels between Employer’s Agent, Project Management and Contract Administration services. However, when you appoint an Employer’s Agent your appointed person represents you legally and as such must take responsibility for correctly discharging your duties.

Employer’s Agent is a wide ranging service and includes the following key activities:

  • Analysis and setting of the project brief
  • Taking the lead role during the design process managing time, cost and quality matters
  • Management of the appointed design team
  • Responsibility and management of the engagement with all parties and stakeholders both internally and externally to the project
  • Preparation of Employer’s Requirements and contract documentation
  • Provide advice of suitable procurement methods
  • Management of the contractor procurement process
