I begin working for the Automatic Fire Alarm Association on September

33012 DESCRIPTION BREAKDOWN:
"Understand contractual relationships in the construction industry."

Construction documents are defined as all of the written and graphic
documents prepared or assembled by the architect/engineer for
communicating the design and administering the construction contract.

Contract documents include:
- Bidding requirements
- Contract forms
- Conditions of the contract
- Specifications
- Drawings
- Addenda
- Contract modifications

Contract definitions:

Agreement. The written contract entered into by the owner and the
contractor to perform work. The agreement is a legally instrument
binding the parties to the work. The agreement defines the relationships
and obligations that exist between the owner and the contractor.

Construction Performance Bond. Provides financial protection for the
owner in the event the contractor does not complete the work in
accordance with the agreement.

Construction Payment Bond. Protects the labor force and the suppliers of
materials should the contractor fail to meet their obligations.
Precludes the need for the labor force or the suppliers to seek payment
directly from the owner because of non-payment by the contractor.

Certificates. Includes certificates of insurance and certificates of
compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

General Conditions. General clauses that establish how the project is to
be administered. General conditions contain provisions that are common
practice nationwide. Standard documents published by professional
societies are often used.

Specifications. Specifications define the qualitative requirements for
products, materials, and workmanship upon which the contract is based.

Drawings. A graphic representation of the work to be done. Drawings
illustrate the relationship of the materials to each other, including
size, shape, location, and connections.

Addenda. Additions made to the construction documents during the bidding
period. Addenda are used to revise, delete, or add to any of the bidding
requirements or contract documents.

Contract Modifications. After the agreement has been signed, additions,
deletions, or modifications to the work to be done are accomplished by
change order, supplemental instruction, and/or field orders. Contract
modifications may be issued at any time during the contract period.
