London: Kelly's Directories Ltd. 1 Standard conditions of contract Over a period of many years there have been introduced a large number of standard forms of conditions of contract. Sometimes these have been developed by particular industries or specialist suppliers, but conditions for more general use have been developed by the major engineering and building institutions, as well as by government and allied organizations.

The contract can be on the basis of cost plus a percentage fee (rarely used) or cost plus a fixed fee, or a target cost. Payment terms have to define which costs are reimbursable and which are covered by any lump sum payments. Payment is made on the basis of the estimated expenditure for the forthcoming month, subject to adjustment of the preceding month's payment according to the actual expenditure incurred. This amounts to payment in advance. A project manager administers the contract but he does not have a fully independent status, although he is required to act impartially in some matters.
