In some cases, a third party beneficiary (such as a bank or loan agency) may become involved in disputes. B) Prime Contract The Prime Contract is that contract awarded to the GC, Consortium, or other entity that has full responsibility for the project. (e.g. General Contractor will hold a prime contract, not the subcontractor). C) Internal Rate of Return The internal rate of return is a method of investment analysis where the interest rate is determined at which the costs of the investment is equivalent to the benefits, or the annualized effective interest rate at which the NPV of all cash flows relevant to an investment add up to zero. It is called “Internal” because it tends to neglect externalities, such as the cost of capital. It is not ideal for comparisons between mutually exclusive options. D) Fast-Tracking Generally, in DB projects, the construction may break ground before the design is complete, allowing the project to be completed in less time.
