PWD FORM CONTRACT
During exploring of generating the forced terms and conditions of the Standard Form of Contract, needed to involve the opinion of others parties such as employer or clients and contractor. Thus, contraposition of the clauses that related to time and conditions of distinct of Standard Form of Contract are look back be in line with the effects that they are when used by the construction industry. A document research showed that the theme of inspecting the Standard Form of Contract clauses that related to time haven’t been discussing and study extensively. Related to the type of Standard Form of Contract, programming methods and skill, and cost and hazard management. Actually, there is little research that has been related to discussing how Standard Form of Contract clauses that related to time can affecting the contract administration.
Due to the general view on the contraposition distinct construction Standard Form of Contact, the clauses that related to time and conditions of distinct of Standard Form of Contract is different compared to other Standard Form of Contract. By researching the present comments on mainly time-related clauses in Standard Form of Contracts by some investigator, found that there are some problems that are aroused by the useless clause that related to time and conditions.
Between Malaysian Standard Form of Contract, merely PAM Form Contract and CIDB Contract announced that the requirement of arranging and prepare the working programme while PWD 203A Contract doesn’t incorporate to this matter. It is announced that under Clause 3.4 of the PAM Form Contract and also in CIDB Contract under Clause 5.1, must prepare the working programme. However, the working programme requirements are banned by clause 3.5 of the PAM Form Contract and Clause 5.2 of the CIDB Contract because it having some official meaning over contract duties. The contractor who fails to submit a valid and actual working programme will put himself at a harm on certification of entitlement to the extension of time and be able to lower the number of expressed conditions operating when the contractor related in delays event when it occurred.
Because working programme cause contractor to notice if the duration of the client that has to prescribe is achievable because no clients want to gain a construction project with an unacceptable duration. It also can help the contractor to calculate some overhead costs such as running cost, supervision cost and also the management costs. The working programme can also help the contractor to calculate and certainly check the tender estimate. The contractor can also submit the working programme together with the tender schedule with their tender price, this will help contractor to strengthens their tender price as it illustrates to the clients that contractor already knows how to construct the project through the working programme.
There are a number of examples stated that the use of the CIDB Contract had not lead to overall contentment and may have really been less generative than common contracts. CIDB Contract has been confederate in the past events with low-quality projects, leakage, crippled projects and other such disadvantages conveyed by the contractor. There were also some examples where some projects confer and constructed by the contractor using CIDB Contract but conduce to the building project postpone and low-quality. Contractors also not good workmanship, especially in using the waterproofing materials, column and also the beam calibration.
The greater part of the contractor related in CIDB Contract received from poor productivity and monetary performance. This is related to the events that the contractor needed to pay the supplier first to purchase some components. It is a high resource investment where 30% of the amount of the building project is to be paid first. Delay in the payment means that the component that supplied will be delay also, will also influence the productivity of the building projects. During 2008, Malaysia’s government made the employ of CIDB Contract compulsory in all recently constructed public building. The significance of competent contractor to build up the public building has increased. But there are still finite numbers of the contractor in Malaysia fall upon CIDB Contract that can engage the CIDB projects.
To become an expert in CIDB Contract, the contractor needed to provide themselves with essential knowledge and information in implementing the CIDB Contract. Their organized system also requires some changing with some best regards to their procedure, practice, program and management to enfold CIDB Contract.
