Sample text

Unless this form of payment is linked to a reward or penalty, it has little value except as a resource measuring device. Profit sliding scale If the contractor has been asked to meet a target cost or manhours, then his or her profit can be tied to a sliding scale which is at its maximum at some predetermined under-run, reducing to zero at some point. This is sometimes extended to the point where the contractor starts to repay the client’s cost over-run. (This is similar to liquidated damages; see p.

Measured work, bills of quantities That method of payment which physically measures the work done and then sets payment according to a list of prices is termed ‘measured work payment’; a bill of quantities is such a list. The measured work form is probably the commonest in civil engineering and building. In this form the designer calculates the quantities in all categories of materials and activities (from excavation to door locks, pipe supports to switches) and lists them out. The contractor sets a price against each item and thereby calculates an overall price.

Conversely, if the target is exceeded, the contractor and the client share the burden of the extra cost. Limits can be placed on the extent of this sharing so that, for example, it is restricted to plus or minus 10% of the target cost. Above and below this range, the contractor will take the risk, as is the case in a lump sum contract. Target-cost contracts have been shown to be one of the best forms of contract for generating mutual incentives for the client and the contractor, hence leading to team working on a project.
