Each EJCDC Contract Document is systematically prepared, reviewed and analyzed by committees of experienced engineering design and construction professionals, owners, contractors, professional liability and risk management experts, with the participation and advice of legal counsel. For more than 30 years, EJCDC® has been developing and endorsing quality contract documents and encouraging their use through education and promotion.
"For many decades, our firm has used EJCDC® documents for all types of contracts, for public and private projects, and for various project delivery systems because we believe EJCDC® documents are well-written, well-organized, and complete. EJCDC documents fairly allocate risk to the parties involved in construction and fully cover more topics, particularly relative to public work, than do other standard-form contract documents. EJCDC documents are familiar to and acceptable to our clients and the contractors who typically work for them."
