Agency Series Model Contract Documents 2013
 
The Agency (A) Series of CMAA Standard Contract Documents are used to establish the contractual relationships among the parties when the Construction Manager is hired as the Owner’s Agent. This specific Agency Series of four (4) CMAA documents provides any Owner the necessary standard forms for contract documents to establish the contractual terms between the Owner and CM, Owner & Contractor, Owner & Designer, and the General Conditions of the construction contract. These documents are suitable for the conventional design-bid-build delivery method. Use of the A series of CMAA contract documents are appropriate when the Owner’s project is divided into separate contracts for design and construction (with one or more contractors). These documents can be used on either small or large projects.

Contract Administration Guidelines
by CMAA | 72 pages | © 2012
 
Developed by the CMAA Contract Administration Committee as a detailed expansion of the contract administration section of the CM Standards of Practice.  This Manual addresses the administrative and reporting requirements for the Construction Manager (CM) during the execution of construction projects. It is intended to supplement Chapter 6, contract administration, of the CMAA's Construction Management Standards of Practice by providing an overview of the  contract administration responsibilities on a typical project from concept to occupancy. Most projects have a unique set of contract administration requirements because of specific project characteristics, such as project type –(airports, transit & healthcare facilities, courthouses, and bridges).
 
Other project characteristics such as geographical location, union issues, congested urban sites, language, currency rates, require that the CM implement appropriate contract administration measures to address all of these issues. Whether a project is being delivered under a traditional D-B-B contract, multiple prime contracts, construction management at-risk contract, or design-build contract will significantly impact the CM’s responsibility for project management and contract administration.
