Description
The Professional Services Short Contract (PSSC), produced in partnership with the Association for Project Management (APM) is intended for use in the appointment of a supplier to provide professional services on smaller scale projects where sophisticated management techniques are not required.  It can be used for appointing project managers, supervisors, designers, consultants or other suppliers under NEC contracts and can also be used for appointing supliers on non-NEC construction projects or for non-construction projects.  
 
Watch our video - Jon Broome, Chairman of the Association for Project Management (APM) Contract and Procurement Special Interest Group (C&P SIG) talks about the reasons behind the development of the PSSC and how it has been successfully applied in practice.

 
Construction Clients' Board endorsement of NEC3
 
The Construction Clients' Board (formerly Public Sector Clients' Forum) recommends that public sector organisations use the NEC3 contracts when procuring construction.
 
Standardising use of this comprehensive suite of contracts should help to deliver efficiencies across the public sector and promote behaviours in line with the principles of Achieving Excellence in Construction. 
 
The PSSC is produced in partnership with the Association for Project Management.
