The User's Guide to Architect-Engineer Contracts explores the process of selecting architect-engineer firms to perform design services for the government. This process is regulated by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) along with other regulations from the Department of Defense. This mass of regulatory guidance makes it extremely difficult to be successful in obtaining government contracts. To assist the architect-engineer in this endeavor, the User's Guide explains all the facets of an architect-engineer contract from beginning to end. It details how Commerce Business Daily announcements are developed; how the negotiation process works; how the selection process works; how a proposal is prepared; and how contracts can be modified. This book will provide the architect-engineer with information that should help him to better present his qualifications when submitting a proposal for a contract. The book was fully updated in 1995.
