3 PREFACE The 2006 version of the “Primer on Construction Contracting for the 21 st Century” is an updated version of the 1997 Primer on Contracting 2000 , which was initially written by the Contract Administration Section of the AASHTO Subcommittee on Construction. It is not considered to be an official AASHTO guide or voluntary standard. This document lists various project delivery methods, procurement methods, payment methods, contracting techniques and contract administration procedures that are currently being used by various contracting agencies in their transportation programs. Neither AASHTO nor FHWA fully supports all of the techniques that are identified in this document. Some of the techniques are not appropriate for all contracting agencies and they should be used only where applicable. The contracting agencies should consult with their counsel to verify the legal sufficiency of using these techniques. Also, it is extremely important to coordinate with the highway industry in the development of any new contracting technique. Early industry involvement will facilitate the implementation and acceptance of techniques that have not been used in the past. The Subcommittee on Construction welcomes comments on this Subcommittee Report and will consider all that are received. It is anticipated that comments on this report will be considered for incorporation in future editions of this report. Comments on this report should be sent directly to the Secretary for the Contract Administration Section, AASHTO Subcommittee for Construction at the address displayed below. Gerald Yakowenko, PE Contract Administration Task Force Secretary Federal Highway Administration HIPA-30, Room 3134 400 7th Street, SW Washington DC 20590 202-366-1562, FAX 202-366-3988, Gerald.Yakowenko@dot.gov
