NEC Option F: Management contract

NEC was first published in 1993 as the New Engineering Contract. It is a suite of construction contracts intended to promote partnering and collaboration between the parties to a construction contract.

The Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) is the most frequently used, and can be adopted on projects involving the construction of infrastructure or buildings. It is used for the appointment of a contractor for engineering and construction work, including any level of design responsibility.

It allows for 6 options:

Option F is a cost reimbursable management contract in which the works are constructed by a number of different works contractors who are contracted to a management contractor. The management contractor is responsible for the work and is paid a fee (the cost that it pays the works contractors plus an additional fee), while the financial risk is largely taken by the client.

Option F contains the core clauses, secondary option clauses, schedules of cost components, contract data, and so on.
