Works requirements

Capital Works Management Framework, Guidance Note, Glossary, Published by the Government of Ireland Department of Finance in 2009 suggests that Works Requirements: ‘…is the document that sets out the Employer’s requirements in relation to the proposed works, and which define the scope of the Works. The Works Requirements for a traditional (employer-designed) contract and those for a design-and-build contract differ primarily in that for the traditional contract, the fully developed design and detailed descriptive specifications are included as input specifications, while in the case of design-and-build the focus is on output specifications, standards and functional requirements.'
