Post-Contract Review

  • Alan Griffith

This short concluding chapter outlines the concept and practice of post-contract review. Construction projects are often subject to two distinct types of post-contract review. The first is the client’s post-contract evaluation, focusing on the client’s perceptions of performance by those parties employed by the client on the project — such as design consultants, the principal contractor and nominated subcontractors. The second type of post-contract review is the principal contractor’s internal, or intraorganisational, evaluation of its own performance throughout the construction project. This focuses on the efficiency and effectiveness of corporate and project management systems, procedures and site practices. The purpose of both types of review is to provide the contractual parties with an opportunity to reflect on their practices with a view to importing continuous improvement to the management of the construction process.
