Advanced Issues in GMP Contracting

 

Manage the risks that are inherent to this delivery system and the additional administrative burden that accompanies the use of this format.

As owners have searched for project delivery systems that reduce the overall duration from project conception to project completion without increasing their risks or their costs disproportionately, one of the most common approaches has included the use of guaranteed maximum price, or GMP, contracts. However, as the use of the various GMP contract formats has proliferated, so have disputes. This topic addresses and resolves these dispute suggestions that parties to these disputes often lack full appreciation of the differences between GMP contracts and the contracts that the users are used to working under, how to manage the risks that are inherent to this delivery system, or the additional administrative burden that accompanies the use of this format.
This material is designed to highlight those differences and equip you with the knowledge needed to both understand and manage the differences and unique risks and administrative burdens of using this format.
