In applying contract administration to any particular engagement, the task is that of identifying the needed function, establishing the level of effort appropriate to each function, determining what organizational entity should provide services required for each function, and developing contractual relationships between the participating organizations so that the total project implementation team will function effectively and efficiently. Through a requisite series of administrative procedures with attendant responsibility, the contract administration group pursues project administration matters to include complete communication between the requisite management personnel at all responsible levels. Included topics are the development of relationships and responsibilities of the construction management team, tasks of the contract administrator, construction contract handling, and change order administration.
