The principles in this guideline are equally applicable to building contractors, trade contractors and subcontractors as well as construction managers. Note that construction management contracts are not lump sum contracts, but usually involve the letting of separate sub-contract supply and trade contracts. The superintendent is appointed as the contract administrator, to manage the interaction between the contractor and the principal.
It is essential that the contract administration role be undertaken by a person having the necessary expertise and qualification to do so. It is the principal's role to ensure the contractor is notified of the appointed superintendent and if there are any limitations to that appointment. If the role of superintendent has not been included at the time of engaging consultant team members, then the appointment should occur as soon as practicable after the acceptance of the contract and must occur before the contractor is given the authority to start work on site.
Key roles of the superintendent are set out in the contract. The superintendent is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the contract and specific tasks including:. The superintendent is obliged to follow the provisions of the contract agreement and contract documents, must interpret and administer the contract in accordance with the documents and must act with due consideration for their intent. The superintendent must act in a manner consistent with these requirements to ensure that the principal is not exposed to risks or liable for additional payments.
Restrictions to the superintendent's powers normally apply to department funded contracts. The superintendent cannot engage in the following actions without the direction of the principal and approval of the departmental director:. An example template for a letter of nomination of the superintendent is contained at the end of this guideline.
These requirements are to be taken as shared duties and obligations, and cannot be wholly delegated to others. The responsibilities are shared and cannot be wholly delegated.
