1 Review
Guides to the FIDIC contract traditionally have been geared towards highlighting the legal aspects of claims arising from the contract. This text focuses on the practical administration of the contract recognizing the growing tendency for projects to be administered by local employers, consultants and contractors, rather than by international organizations.

Last paragraph of Page 75 stated that:-
"The Engineer can clarify any ambiguity or discrepancy between documents, which gives him the opportunity to issue an instruction that a requirement of a
lower priority document shall be obeyed"
The author should amplify that "the Engineer should only issue an instruction that a requirement of a lower priority document shall be obeyed only to the parties' agreement."
The Engineer shall not have the right to amend the Contract which was initially agreed upon without the parties consent.
