The amended contract provides for the possibility for the contractor to terminate these issues if these issues are not addressed within 180 days of the letter of acceptance, which leads to additional complexity in the commencement of work and ignores the possibility that the possession of construction sites is not always necessary, or even advised, at the beginning of the contractor`s work. Finally, the lesser-known FIDIC Blue Book contract was published in 2006, which is a contractual form for dredging, cropping and accessory work, with a large number of administrative agreements. In general, it is the employer who is responsible for the design, and the most important part of the blue book contract is the description of the activity itself, which is defined in detail in the specifications, drawings and design of the work. Otherwise, the 1999 Red Book follows the line of its predecessors as a common law-style engineering contract. In their second edition, Glover and Hughes gave a brief overview of the structure with 20 clauses and a more in-depth analysis of the specific aspects of their content can be found in Chapter 5, „Risk Allocation in Construction Contracts“. A deviation from this tradition is the replacement of the engineer`s dispute resolution function with an Adjudication Dispute Board (DAB). This mechanism was first introduced in 1995 by FIDIC in the Orange Book. It is in section 20 of the 1999 Red, Yellow and Silver Books, but not in the same form. In the 1999 Red Book, the ATM is appointed by the parties at the beginning of the project, which allows its members to become familiar with its progress and challenges. The guide to acquiring engineering projects, freshly released! For potential employers, consulting engineers, contractors, lawyers and many others. The Red Book expects the project to be competitively tendered and the employer to send a letter of acceptance regarding the accepted offer.
While the contract contains a pro forma tender letter, there is no pro-forma for the acceptance letter. The contract assumes that this letter signed by the employer is assimilated to an unconditional acceptance of an offer. The contract therefore assumes that before the contract was signed, contractual relations were established between the parties on the basis of the letter of acceptance. One of the most controversial aspects of the 1999 Rainbow Suite contracts was the treat provision where not to assert a claim within 28 days would cause a contractor to lose its right to an extension of time or additional payment, while the employer only had to assert a right „as soon as possible“. The Multilateral Development Bank`s (MDB) version of the Red Book (see below) introduced a 28-day deadline for employers` rights, but without penalty for loss of rights in the event of non-compliance. Fidic attempted to address the main criticism of the 1999 appeal proceedings. The diet is more than three times longer than that of its predecessor and is remarkably complex. The rights of contractors and employers are now subject to a period of 28 days, although their application has been equated with the power of the engineer to determine rights. . . .
