||The NEC4 Alliance Contract (ALC) was initially published in consultation form. It has been created to support clients wishing to fully integrate a multi-party delivery team for large complex projects.
The consultation process closed on 30 November 2017.
Alliancing is an exciting procurement direction for many clients, particularly when considering a highly complex project with an emerging scope. The potential benefit of using this contract includes a much deeper collaboration between all project partners, bound by common interests and reducing the potential for dispute.
This contract is different from the others within the NEC4 suite as it is a multi-party contract with an integrated risk and reward model. However, it largely follows the same principles of other NEC4 contracts, with familiar provisions, management processes and terminology.
We are now looking at the consultation feedback from users. The final version of the NEC4 Alliance Contract (ALC) is due to be published in 2018.
