Design and Build Contract Administration

The main improvement for the 2009 release of NBS Contract Administrator is the inclusion of the forms for use on the JCT 05 Design and Build Contract.

The forms for this contract have been one of the most requested enhancements to the product over the last few years from users. This now means that NBS Contract Administrator can be used on more projects and there will be also maybe be some new converts to the product who work mainly on Design and Build projects.

The new software has been designed in a way that allows the relevant Design and Build forms to be used whether working on behalf of the employer or on behalf of the contractor. This means that unlike the other contract administration forms – where the forms themselves don’t change, but the person issuing them does – users will be presented with a different set of forms depending on which role is selected.
