The PSSCOC was developed to enable a common contract form to be used for all public sector construction projects. Using a standardised conditions of contract will allow users to be more familiar, reduce tendering efforts and promote greater efficiency in contract administration.
To encourage greater collaboration and mutual trust between stakeholders in the built environment sector, we have developed a set of collaborative clauses, as an Option Module to the PSSCOC, together with industry associations and government agencies. The collaborative contract provisions are currently being piloted in selected public sector projects.
