JCT’s Repair and Maintenance Contract is designed for use on individual projects that involve a defined programme of repair and maintenance works to specified buildings or sites. This contract is primarily for use by local authorities and other employers who regularly place small and medium-size contracts for jobbing work and are sufficiently experienced that an independent contract administrator is not required.
Features of projects using a JCT Repair and Maintenance Contract:
- The pricing and payment structure can be flexible, as the employer can seek quotes on the basis of a fixed price, daywork, or other rates, using either a Schedule of Rates or all-in labour rates in a Schedule of Hourly charges. Payment can be made either by a single payment or by stage payments.
- There is no provision for a contract administrator, so the employer is expected to be experienced in letting contracts for work of this kind and will typically be used to handling contractors’ accounts.
