Description / Abstract:


This Standard was prepared by the joint Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand Committee OB/3, General Conditions of Contract, and issued as an Australian Standard. This Standard is part of the suite of contracts based on AS 2124—1992, General conditions of contract.

This Standard incorporates Amendment No. 1 (October 2000). The changes required by the Amendment are indicated in the text by a marginal bar and amendment number against the clause, note, table, figure or part thereof affected.

This form of Contract is intended to be used for construct only projects of a simple nature.

It is not suitable for projects of a complex or long term nature or where a bill of quantities has been prepared. There is also no provision for Separable Portions or nominated subcontracts.

This Standard is not meant to be used as a short form of AS 2124—1992. Certain obligations and risks are dealt with differently from the way they are dealt with in AS 2124—1992, by reason of the simple nature of the projects for which this form of Contract is intended to be used.

Generally, this form of Contract is intended for projects of value up to $250,000.


1 The parties to this form of Contract must clearly define the scope of the work under the Contract and allocate responsibilities for the payment of fees and the obtaining of approvals.

2 Where the Principal effects insurance policies under Clause 9 or 10, copies of such policies should be made available to tenderers.
