Boost your IQ - You have the questions. We have the answers.
DBIA always wants to know what challenges and opportunities practitioners and owners are facing. We listen for what's missing, what works and what doesn't to allow us to more effectively serve the industry's needs.
A case in point is the feedback we've received to DBIA's completely revised contract documents, which were launched in June 2010. We received a variety of questions about the use of the current forms and addressed a few of these questions for your information. In addition, the DBIA Contract Document Taskforce has graciously agreed to provide additional forms based on feedback from DBIA members and customers. (This will not be a wholesale revision to the new documents.) The Taskforce will be led by Robynne Thaxton-Parkinson, DBIA, who served on the 2010 Task force that revised the documents. Your questions and her answers are on the DBIA website.More
