Managing Contractor Contract templates

The Managing Contractor Contract (MCC-1) templates provide for the involvement of the contractor at an early stage of the project.

The contractor is primarily responsible for the planning, design and delivery of the project, including the engagement of approved subcontractors for major works, medium works and design services.

The contract price comprises both lump sum components and reimbursable costs. The contractor has an obligation to ensure the contract price does not exceed the target cost and to achieve completion of the works by the specified target dates.
