OAA Contracts - Licensed Technologist OAA
The OAA developed several standard contracts for use with clients and consultants that have been adapted for use by Licensed Technologists OAA. To ensure the contracts balance the needs of the parties, the OAA consulted with and had the contracts reviewed by lawyers and other representatives of various client and consultant groups.
OAA 602-2014 and OAA 603-2014 Series Standard Forms of Contract for Licensed Technologist OAA’s Services
The terms and conditions are identical in OAA 602 and 603. The difference is that the OAA 602 documents contain tables of service for “basic” and “additional” services whereas the OAA 603 documents do not contain a table of services. With OAA 603, a custom scope of services suitable for each project is to be developed by the user.
The most recent update of the OAA 602 contract is OAA 602-2014 with Amendments to October 1, 2019. The OAA recommends the use of the recent versions of the standards documents.
Some of the features of the updated version are:
- compatibility with the Construction Act including prompt payment and adjudication
- user friendly as a single fill-in-the-blanks PDF file
- client friendly revisions included for a fair and balanced contract
The OAA 801-2014 Standard Short Form of Contract for Licensed Technologist OAA’s Services is derived from OAA 602 for use on less complex projects.
The OAA 901-2014 Standard Contract Between Architect and Consultant is for use with engineers, and other consultants being retained by a Licensed Technologist OAA.
