Guidance on implementing Alliancing using NEC3 contracts
NEC and Infrastructure Client Group (ICG) launched a free guide on how to implement alliancing.
Collaboration is a common principle of both NEC and ICG. The two got together to develop a document to provide a clear and valuable guidance on how to use NEC3 contracts for alliance arrangements and on the documents that should be developed in preparing the terms of an alliance agreement. In doing so, the guidelines build on the previous ICG Alliancing Best Practice material and Code of Practice for Alliancing.
This document should be used along with the "Alliancing Code of Practice", which can be downloaded here.
January 2016 update on the ECI Clause:
The clause and guidance have been revised to correspond with the "How to" guide being published shortly. This includes a change to the way the incentive mechanism is operated and a number of textual corrections.
