GCCC information sessions on amendments to the public works contracts
04 June 2015
Arising from the review of the performance of the public works contracts published in December 2014, a series of interim amendments are being implemented which will amend the current conditions of contract used to deliver public works projects.
The Government Contracts Committee for Construction (GCCC) is hosting a series of information sessions on the amended forms of public works contracts which are due to be published in July 2015.
The sessions will include an overview of the objectives that underpin the public works contracts, a summary of the review process itself, the rationale behind the interim amendments and detailed descriptions of the amended conditions of contract. The sessions will also provide an opportunity to put questions to representatives of the GCCC on the conditions of contract and other aspects covered by the Capital Works Management Framework.
Each date will consist of a morning and afternoon session. The morning session, from 10am to 1pm, is for public sector officials directly involved in the delivery of public works contracts either in contract administration or contract management. The afternoon session, from 2pm to 5pm, is primarily for contractors and consultants.
