The CIC Scope of Services

The CIC Scope of Services is for use on major building projects designed by a multi-disciplinary team, whatever the procurement route. The client can be a developer, end-user client or a design and build contractor.

The CIC Scope of Services was designed to be used with any form of contact however is the second part of the CIC Consultants’ Contract comprising of an integrated and detailed scope of services from inception to post practical completion for the complete definition of the project to be constructed.

The services that may be undertaken under this scope includes:

  • consultants (engaged on the CIC Conditions section of the CIC Consultants’ Contract or on other terms);
  • specialists contributing to design; and
  • contractors (whether the procurement route is traditional or design and build).

The document sets clearly defined stages for the refinement of the project definition. A series of tables details the tasks to be undertaken by all members of the project team as part of the ‘definition process’. The term ‘definition’ is used rather than ‘design’ because far more than design is involved and not all of those participating in the process undertake design. Thus the process includes management, co-ordination, costing, programming, health and safety and so on. Definition + construction = project.

The approach is innovative; the services set out are comprehensive and enable parties to assemble schedules of services for the project team which are integrated and transparent. The CIC Scope of Services are therefore the perfect tool for working in partnership.
