Agreement terms have been a significant industry concern since the formation of ACEC-BC. The ACEC-BC Agreements Task Force, established by the association’s Board of Directors has looked into this and has issued its final report. For copies of the final report, please email Lia,

In their report the Task Force noted there are three primary types of problems:

Problematic clauses and wording that give rise to liability, business and financial concerns;
A multitude of different forms of agreement means that excessive management and legal time is required for review and negotiation; and
Terms of requests for proposals often discourage or preclude negotiation of unacceptable terms.

How to approach Agreements and what to watch for
Principles of Risk Management to consider when reviewing Agreements
