TRAINING: Getting Paid & Managing Cash Flow
April 14 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT$145.00 – $210.00
*Virtual Instructor Led Training*
Payment in the Construction Industry is a problem. This creates problems for both the Owner and the Contractor as well as the other participants involved with the projects (Consultant, Subcontractors, Sub-Subcontractors and Suppliers)
The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) and the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) publish standard contracts and guides for the Construction Industry.
In this half-day workshop the Payment Process in Standard Contracts (CCDC-2 – Stipulated Price Contract, CCA 1 – Stipulated Price Subcontract, CCA-19 Stipulated Price Sub-Subcontract) will be reviewed along with contract language from non-standard contracts which can delay payment. It is important to recognize when your client is trying to work language into the contract which delays payment ( Pay-if-Paid, Pay-when Paid, “Notwithstanding clauses)
Guides covered by the course:
– CCA 50 – A Prime Contractors Guide to Project Financing and Payment Security
– CCA 53 – Trade Contractors Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts
– CCA Banking Guide for the Canadian Construction Association
– CCDC 12 Project Financial Information Disclosure Form
