Picture of the productSocio-Economic Policies - A Practical Guide for Construction

 This work is a supplement to Federal Government Construction Contracts: A Practical Guide for the Industry Professional, Second Edition by Smith, Currie & Hancock, Copyright John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2010. Portions of this book use material reproduced with permission of John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

The second edition of Federal Government Construction Contracts is AGC's primary guide for general contractors and specialty trade contractors competing for or performing construction projects for the federal government.  Providing detailed coverage of the “Best Value” award process, new and emerging project delivery systems, critical contract provisions including the Changes, Differing Site Conditions, and Suspension of Work clauses, as well as the detailed requirements for contractor business ethics and compliance programs, this book is intended to be a complete and practical reference to federal government construction contracting for industry professionals.

To make this publication as useful as possible, Smith, Currie and the AGC contacted numerous contractors of all sizes and sought their advice and recommendations as an Advisory Council on the organization of the book and its content. We believe that the input of this Advisory Council was a key step in the development of this new edition, as well as the numerous checklists, tables such as the tables of Acronyms and Useful Internet sites, sample federal government specifications on Building Information Modeling, and guides contained in the text.
