ConsensusDOCS Type Limited liability company Industry Construction Genre Construction Contracts Founded Arlington, Va., U.S. (September 2007 ) Headquarters Arlington, Virginia, United States Area served North America Products Standard Form Construction Contracts Website http://ConsensusDOCS.org
ConsensusDOCS is a family of standard contract documents written and endorsed by a coalition of 35 leading construction industry organizations (the ConsensusDOCS Coalition). ConsensusDOCS offers more than 90 different construction contract documents covering all methods of project delivery. The DOCS in ConsensusDOCS is an abbreviation for the Design, Owner, Contractor, Subcontractor and Surety organizations represented in the ConsensusDOCS Coalition. The ConsensusDOCS mission is to advance the design and construction industry by identifying and utilizing best practices and fairly allocating risks to all parties.
The design and construction industry has relied heavily on standard form contracts produced by associations representing a segment of the industry. These contract documents are perceived as favoring the segment of the industry for which the association drafting the documents represents. Consequently, these documents are often heavily modified.
An industry-wide invitation was extended to generate a truly consensus set of standard construction documents. While this had been achieved in other countries, this had never been accomplished in the United States. Beginning in 2004, negotiations and drafting sessions led to the publication of ConsensusDOCS on September 28, 2007. The documents were originally endorsed by 20 organizations. A comprehensive update was published on January 19, 2011 and fourteen additional organizations have endorsed the documents and joined the coalition ,ref. . The American Institute of Architects (AIA) was invited to participate and attended the first session, but they chose not to participate. The Design Professionals included in the ConsensusDOCS coalition include CIRT, LCI, CSI and AWI, as well as individual stakeholders who were part of the drafting process that possess an engineering or architectural background.
ConsensusDOCS attempts to efficiently and equitably allocate risks so that ConsensusDOCS users save considerable transaction costs. The goal is to minimize adding costs to the construction process to price out unknown risk contingencies. By using an industry-accepted foundation, parties no longer need to go through a painstaking negotiation process for each transaction risk, rather, ConsensusDOCS users and their legal and insurance advisers may only need to review transaction-specific changes from the standard document. This saves time and expense for all contracting parties.
What Are Standard Contract Documents?
Standard contracts are copyrighted, form contracts routinely used off of the shelf for more common type of industry transactions that require limited review and insertion of project specific information. They also provide a baseline for negotiations for a comprehensive and fair contract. The documents cover in broad fashion the essential terms and conditions of the parties’ bargain, including legal and insurance concerns. They contain blank spaces for the parties’ names, the scope of the services to be performed, the time of performance, the amount of compensation due, and other bargain-specific information. By filling in requested information and by signing the agreement, the parties are bound by and adopt the terms contained in the standard form document. Generally, parties are free to modify the terms of the standard form contract as needed to address the particulars of their project.
Standard Forms Are Different From Custom-made Contracts
Custom or manuscripted contracts forms are those drafted completely from scratch, usually by one party’s legal counsel or contracting officer, to address one specific transaction. They generally involve considerable time and expense to draft. The drafter must become very conversant with the complexities of the contemplated transaction and may not balance the parties’ interests and responsibilities fairly. Model forms are those meant to be merely suggestive of appropriate terms and conditions. These forms are not intended to be used in their entirety. Rather, the parties are free to pick and choose which terms and conditions within the model forms pertain to their bargain. The parties then place the chosen terms and conditions in their own contract. However, parties must be sure not to include ambiguous or contradictory provisions.
The ConsensusDOCS Drafting Process
The ConsensusDOCS coalition’s open and transparent process invites all interested parties to the drafting table, and each has a voice in drafting fair and balanced contract terms.
ConsensusDOCS, LLC is managed from a staffing perspective by The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). The content of the documents is written by the ConsensusDOCS Contract Content Advisory Council, which is composed of members of all Coalition organizations and industry stakeholders. Each endorsing organization also has membership in the ConsensusDOCS Business and Marketing Advisory Council, which advises the staff on educational, marketing and business efforts.
ConsensusDOCS provides a complimentary copyright license for qualified individuals, institutions and organizations to use sample documents in their curriculum, publications and presentations. Interested parties may submit an Educational Copyright License Application.
