Contract Administration Obligations

From project inception through to successful execution, we monitor project performance and provide practical solutions to critical issues encountered in the field.

Collaboration and Communications

Working on behalf of the client, McIntosh Perry Contract Administrators serve as a liaison between the owner and the contractor.

Our team engages at every level of a project. Our CA staff collaborates with all parties involved, from engineering, procurement, and construction management to local municipalities, the public, utility companies, and government agencies, including the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO), Alberta Transportation.

Throughout every project, CA teams lead project meetings. We build working relationships with project stakeholders to ease interactions and promote adherence to contract documents.

Risk Identification and Problem Resolution

Our world-class projects are complex. Unforeseen risks exist, and errors happen during construction. In the field, McIntosh Perry Contract Administrators proactively look for issues and respond quickly to minimize their impact when they occur.

We avoid additional costs and delays by evaluating incidents early and adapting as needed. Our Contract Administration team actively resolves contract issues and negotiates any extra work needed to execute each project successfully.

Inspections and Regulation Compliance

McIntosh Perry Contract Administrators lead, coordinate and monitor all inspections conducted onsite. The CA team also completes material sampling and analyzes test results to validate that only material that adheres to project contract specifications is utilized.

Each member of our CA team is familiar with municipal, provincial and federal standards, as well as health and safety regulations. With this knowledge, onsite Contract Administration staff works in the client’s best interest to preserve the project’s integrity and avoid potential legal risks.

Reporting and Payment Coordination

Contract Administration duties include the documentation of all activities in the field. Reports are generated for the client and analyzed to ensure the project meets objectives and stays within the specified budget.

McIntosh Perry CA teams maintain a detailed daily diary of the contractor’s work, instructions provided, issues encountered, and change management employed. They also regularly review, interpret and analyze the contractor’s critical path schedules.

As an extension of these efforts, the McIntosh Perry CA team reconciles progress payments in a timely manner and maintains compliance with the prompt payment requirements defined by contract documents and statutory regulations.
