Rural Utilities Service's EJCDC Policy
|It is the Rural Utilities Service’s policy that the Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC) documents be used as the foundation for the engineering and construction contract documents for all Water and Waste Disposal program actions. The EJCDC has developed the following documents which will be considered previously approved by the Agency for use by applicants, owners, and borrowers in the Rural Utilities Service’s Water and Waste Disposal program.
a.Agreement between Owner and Engineer for Professional Services (EJCDC No. E-500, including Exhibits A through J, 2008 Edition),
b.Suggested Form of Agreement between Owner and Contractor for Construction Contract (Stipulated Price) (EJCDC No. C-520, 2007 Edition), and
c.Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract (EJCDC No. C-700, 2007 Edition).
When these documents are properly coordinated with other documents in the EJCDC set of Construction Related Documents, the documents are acceptable for use by RUS applicants and borrowers in the procurement of engineering professional services and utility construction services for projects with financial assistance under the Water and Waste Disposal programs.|
