In June 2017, the NEC released its next generation of contracts – the NEC4. The NEC is widely used throughout South Africa so why not use this 1-day CPD-accredited training course to learn more about the improvements, changes and new features?
Described by the NEC as an ‘evolution not revolution’, the NEC4 builds on the success as well as the content of the NEC3 to achieve even further improvements which now reflect procurement and project management developments as well as emerging best practices. So ultimately NEC4 makes additional enhancements to the overall flexibility, clarity and ease of administration of an NEC contract.
With a variety of new features (many of which are optional to allow for greater flexibility) as well as 2 brand new forms of contract, namely the NEC4 Design, Build and Operate Contract (DBO) and the Alliance Contract (ALC) the contract aims to provide for an even greater range of potential contract and procurement solutions for Clients who are undertaking projects and works programmes no matter their size and/or type.
We all know that the NEC is used extensively in South Africa, particularly in the public sector as well as in many of the parastatal organisations. Users who are familiar with NEC3 contracts will have no trouble moving to NEC4 and this is because the style, layout, terminology and key project management processes that run through NEC contracts remains the same. However, the changes that the contract brings are substantial and cannot simply be glossed over. So, instead of reading a few things on the Internet and hoping that you have it covered…this 1-day CPD accredited training course will give you an opportunity to quickly get-up-to-speed and explains all of the new features and improvements in one go!
