New Contract Guidance Available for Construction Industry

JCT vice chair, John Riches, with LGA members.

CONSTRUCTION contract standards company, JCT, has been providing new guidance for public sector clients on various aspects of its contracts, including contract selection, guidance on the JCT 2016 Edition, and specific contract families.

JCT vice chair and vice chair of the JCT Drafting Sub-Committee, John Riches, has given a number of presentations to public sector organisations, including members of the Local Government Association (LGA).

John said, “We often underrate or forget training and familiarisation. They are fundamental to the day job, they are a sound investment and reap dividends almost immediately.

“I am grateful for the enthusiasm and welcome from the LGA for their participation in this new initiative.”

JCT’s public sector guidance complements another new JCT initiative, JCT Training, which offers specific one-day training courses on a variety of JCT contracts and contractual issues.
