the decimal point in the unit price, in which case the total
price as quoted shall govern and the unit price shall be
corrected;

subtraction of subtotals, the subtotals shall prevail and the
total shall be corrected; and

the Contract, shall not be taken into account in bid evaluation.

34.4 If this Bidding Document allows Bidders to quote separate prices
for different contracts, and to award multiple contracts to a single
Bidder, the methodology to determine the best-evaluated price of
the contract combinations, including any discounts offered in the

Qualification Criteria).

34.5 If the bid for an admeasurement contract, which results in the
best-evaluated Bid Price, is seriously unbalanced, front loaded or

detailed price analyses for any or all items of the Bill of
Quantities, to demonstrate the internal consistency of those
prices with the construction methods and schedule proposed.

documentary evidence of the Bidders qualifications submitted
by the Bidder, pursuant to ITB 17.1.

determination shall result in disqualification of the bid, in which
event the Employer shall proceed to the next best-evaluated bid
to make a similar determination of that Bidders qualifications to
perform satisfactorily.
37. Employers Right
to Accept Any
Bid, and to
Reject Any or

2-4 Section VI Employers Requirements

Specifications
A set of precise and clear Specifications is a prerequisite for bidders to respond realistically
and competitively to the requirements of the Employer without qualifying or conditioning
their bids. In the context of international competitive bidding, the Specifications must be
drafted to permit the widest possible competition and, at the same time, present a clear
statement of the required standards of workmanship, materials, and performance of the goods
and services to be procured. Only if this is done shall the objectives of economy, efficiency,
and fairness in procurement be realized, responsiveness of bids be ensured, and the
subsequent task of Bid evaluation facilitated. The Specifications should require that all
goods and materials to be incorporated in the Works be new, unused, of the most recent or
current models, and incorporate all recent improvements in design and materials unless
provided otherwise in the Contract.
Samples of Specifications from previous similar projects in the same country are useful in to
prepare Specifications. The use of metric units is encouraged by the Government. Most
Specifications are normally written specially by the Employer or Project Manager to suit the
Contract Works in hand. There is no standard set of Specifications for universal application
in all sectors in all countries, but there are established principles and practices, which are
reflected in these documents.
There are considerable advantages in standardizing General Specifications for repetitive
Works in recognized public sectors, such as highways, ports, railways, urban housing,
irrigation, and water supply, in the same country or region where similar conditions prevail.
The General Specifications should cover all classes of workmanship, materials, and
equipment commonly involved in construction, although not necessarily to be used in a
particular Works Contract. Deletions or addendums should then adapt the General
Specifications to apply them to the particular Works.
Care must be taken in drafting Specifications to ensure that they are not restrictive. In the
Specifications of standards for goods, materials, and workmanship, recognized international
standards should be used as much as possible. Where other particular standards are used,
whether Zambianstandards or other standards, the Specifications should state that goods,
materials, and workmanship that meet other authoritative standards, and which ensure
substantially equal or higher quality than the standards mentioned, shall also be acceptable.
To that effect, the following sample clause may be inserted in the Special Conditions or
Specifications.
Equivalency of Standards and Codes
Wherever reference is made in the Contract to specific standards and codes to be met by the
goods and materials to be furnished, and work performed or tested, the provisions of the
latest current edition or revision of the relevant standards and codes in effect shall apply,
unless otherwise expressly stated in the Contract. Where such standards and codes are
national, or relate to a particular country or region, other authoritative standards that ensure a
substantially equal or higher quality than the standards and codes specified shall be accepted
subject to the Project Managers prior review and written consent. Differences between the
Section 6 Employers Requirements 2-5


standards specified and the proposed alternative standards shall be fully described in writing
by the Contractor and submitted to the Project Manager at least 28 days prior to the date
when the Contractor desires the Project Managers consent. In the event the Project Manager
determines that such proposed deviations do not ensure substantially equal or higher quality,
the Contractor shall comply with the standards specified in the documents.
These Notes for Preparing Specifications are intended only as information for the Employer
or the person drafting the bidding documents. They should not be included in the final
documents.

These General Conditions of Contract (GCC), read in conjunction with the Particular
Conditions of Contract(PCC) and other documents listed therein, should be a complete
document expressing fairly the rights and obligations of both parties.

These General Conditions of Contract have been developed on the basis of considerable
international experience in the drafting and management of contracts, bearing in mind a trend
in the construction industry towards simpler, more straightforward language.

The GCC can be used for both smaller admeasurement contracts and lump sum contracts.

an updated Program at intervals no longer than the period stated
in the PCC. If the Contractor does not submit an updated
Program within this period, the Project Manager may withhold
the amount stated in the PCC from the next payment certificate

the date on which the overdue Program has been submitted. In
the case of a lump sum contract, the Contractor shall provide an
updated Activity Schedule within 14 days of being instructed to
by the Project Manager.
25.4 The Project Managers approval of the Program shall not alter
the Contractors obligations. The Contractor may revise the

Section VII General Conditions of Contract 3-15


the Intended
Completion
Date
if a Compensation Event occurs or a Variation is issued which
makes it impossible for Completion to be achieved by the
Intended Completion Date without the Contractor taking steps to
accelerate the remaining work, which would cause the Contractor
to incur additional cost.
26.2 The Project Manager shall decide whether and by how much to
extend the Intended Completion Date within 21 days of the
Contractor asking the Project Manager for a decision upon the
effect of a Compensation Event or Variation and submitting full
supporting information. If the Contractor has failed to give early
warning of a delay or has failed to cooperate in dealing with a
delay, the delay by this failure shall not be considered in
assessing the new Intended Completion Date.
27. Acceleration 27.1 When the Employer wants the Contractor to finish before the
Intended Completion Date, the Project Manager shall obtain
priced proposals for achieving the necessary acceleration from
the Contractor. If the Employer accepts these proposals, the
Intended Completion Date shall be adjusted accordingly and
confirmed by both the Employer and the Contractor.
27.2 If the Contractors priced proposals for an acceleration are
accepted by the Employer, they are incorporated in the Contract
Price and treated as a Variation.
28. Delays
Ordered by the
Project
Manager

28.1 The Project Manager may instruct the Contractor to delay the
start or progress of any activity within the Works.
29. Management
Meetings
29.1 Either the Project Manager or the Contractor may require the
other to attend a management meeting. The business of a
management meeting shall be to review the plans for remaining
work and to deal with matters raised in accordance with the early
warning procedure.
29.2 The Project Manager shall record the business of management
meetings and provide copies of the record to those attending the
meeting and to the Employer. The responsibility of the parties
for actions to be taken shall be decided by the Project Manager
either at the management meeting or after the management
meeting and stated in writing to all who attended the meeting.
30. Early Warning 30.1 The Contractor shall warn the Project Manager at the earliest
opportunity of specific likely future events or circumstances that
may adversely affect the quality of the work, increase the
Contract Price, or delay the execution of the Works. The Project
3-16 Section VII General Conditions of Contract

Manager may require the Contractor to provide an estimate of
the expected effect of the future event or circumstance on the
Contract Price and Completion Date. The estimate shall be
provided by the Contractor as soon as reasonably possible.
30.2 The Contractor shall cooperate with the Project Manager in
making and considering proposals for how the effect of such an
event or circumstance can be avoided or reduced by anyone
involved in the work and in carrying out any resulting instruction
of the Project Manager.
C. Quality Control
31. Identifying
Defects
31.1 The Project Manager shall check the Contractors work and
notify the Contractor of any Defects that are found. Such
checking shall not affect the Contractors responsibilities. The
Project Manager may instruct the Contractor to search for a
Defect and to uncover and test any work that the Project
Manager considers may have a Defect.
32. Tests 32.1 If the Project Manager instructs the Contractor to carry out a test
not specified in the Specification to check whether any work has
a Defect and the test shows that it does, the Contractor shall pay
for the test and any samples. If there is no Defect, the test shall
be a Compensation Event.
33. Correction of
Defects
33.1 The Project Manager shall give notice to the Contractor of any
Defects before the end of the Defects Liability Period, which
begins at Completion, and is defined in the PCC. The Defects
Liability Period shall be extended for as long as Defects remain
to be corrected.
33.2 Every time notice of a Defect is given, the Contractor shall
correct the notified Defect within the length of time specified by
the Project Managers notice.
34. Uncorrected
Defects
34.1 If the Contractor has not corrected a Defect within the time
specified in the Project Managers notice, the Project Manager
shall assess the cost of having the Defect corrected, and the
Contractor shall pay this amount.
D. Cost Control
35. Contract Price 35.1 In the case of an admeasurement contract, the Bill of Quantities
shall contain priced items for the Works to be performed by the
Contractor. The Bill of Quantities is used to calculate the
Contract Price. The Contractor will be paid for the quantity of
the work accomplished at the rate in the Bill of Quantities for
Section VII General Conditions of Contract 3-17


each item.
35.2 In the case of a lump sum contract, the Activity Schedule shall
contain the priced activities for the Works to be performed by the
Contractor. The Activity Schedule is used to monitor and control
the performance of activities on which basis the Contractor will
be paid. If payment for Materials on Site shall be made
separately, the Contractor shall show delivery of Materials to the
Site separately on the Activity Schedule.
36. Changes in the
Contract Price
36.1 In the case of an admeasurement contract:
(a) If the final quantity of the work done differs from the
quantity in the Bill of Quantities for the particular item by
more than 25 percent, provided the change exceeds 1
percent of the Initial Contract Price, the Project Manager
shall adjust the rate to allow for the change.
(b) The Project Manager shall not adjust rates from changes in
quantities if thereby the Initial Contract Price is exceeded
by more than 15 percent, except with the prior approval of
the Employer.
(c) If requested by the Project Manager, the Contractor shall
provide the Project Manager with a detailed cost
breakdown of any rate in the Bill of Quantities.
36.2 In the case of a lump sum contract, the Activity Schedule shall be
amended by the Contractor to accommodate changes of Program
or method of working made at the Contractors own discretion.
Prices in the Activity Schedule shall not be altered when the
Contractor makes such changes to the Activity Schedule.
37. Variations

37.1 All Variations shall be included in updated Programs, and, in the
case of a lump sum contract, also in the Activity Schedule,
produced by the Contractor.
37.2 The Contractor shall provide the Project Manager with a
quotation for carrying out the Variation when requested to do so
by the Project Manager. The Project Manager shall assess the
quotation, which shall be given within seven (7) days of the
request or within any longer period stated by the Project
Manager and before the Variation is ordered.
37.3 If the Contractors quotation is unreasonable, the Project
Manager may order the Variation and make a change to the
Contract Price, which shall be based on the Project Managers
own forecast of the effects of the Variation on the Contractors
costs.
3-18 Section VII General Conditions of Contract

37.4 If the Project Manager decides that the urgency of varying the
work would prevent a quotation being given and considered
without delaying the work, no quotation shall be given and the
Variation shall be treated as a Compensation Event.
37.5 The Contractor shall not be entitled to additional payment for
costs that could have been avoided by giving early warning.
37.6 In the case of an admeasurement contract, if the work in the
Variation corresponds to an item description in the Bill of
Quantities and if, in the opinion of the Project Manager, the
quantity of work above the limit stated in Sub-Clause 38.1 or the
timing of its execution do not cause the cost per unit of quantity
to change, the rate in the Bill of Quantities shall be used to
calculate the value of the Variation. If the cost per unit of
quantity changes, or if the nature or timing of the work in the
Variation does not correspond with items in the Bill of
Quantities, the quotation by the Contractor shall be in the form of
new rates for the relevant items of work.
38. Cash Flow
Forecasts
38.1 When the Program, or, in the case of a lump sum contract, the
Activity Schedule, is updated, the Contractor shall provide the
Project Manager with an updated cash flow forecast. The cash

statement and certify the amount to be paid to the Contractor.
39.3 The value of work executed shall be determined by the Project
Manager.
39.4 The value of work executed shall comprise:
(a) In the case of an admeasurement contract, the value of the
quantities of work in the Bill of Quantities that have been
completed; or
(b) In the case of a lump sum contract, the value of work
executed shall comprise the value of completed activities in
the Activity Schedule.
39.5 The value of work executed shall include the valuation of
Section VII General Conditions of Contract 3-19


Variations and Compensation Events.
39.6 The Project Manager may exclude any item certified in a
previous certificate or reduce the proportion of any item
previously certified in any certificate in the light of later
information.
40. Payments 40.1 Payments shall be adjusted for deductions for advance payments
and retention. The Employer shall pay the Contractor the
amounts certified by the Project Manager within 28 days of the
date of each certificate. If the Employer makes a late payment,
the Contractor shall be paid interest on the late payment in the
next payment. Interest shall be calculated from the date by
which the payment should have been made up to the date when
the late payment is made at the prevailing rate of interest for
commercial borrowing for each of the currencies in which
payments are made.
40.2 If an amount certified is increased in a later certificate or as a
result of an award by the Adjudicator or an Arbitrator, the
Contractor shall be paid interest upon the delayed payment as set
out in this clause. Interest shall be calculated from the date upon
which the increased amount would have been certified in the
absence of dispute.
40.3 Unless otherwise stated, all payments and deductions shall be
paid or charged in the proportions of currencies comprising the
Contract Price.
40.4 Items of the Works for which no rate or price has been entered in
shall not be paid for by the Employer and shall be deemed
covered by other rates and prices in the Contract.

(a) The Employer does not give access to a part of the Site by
the Site Possession Date pursuant to GCC Sub-Clause 20.1.
(b) The Employer modifies the Schedule of Other Contractors
in a way that affects the work of the Contractor under the
Contract.
(c) The Project Manager orders a delay or does not issue
Drawings, Specifications, or instructions required for
execution of the Works on time.
(d) The Project Manager instructs the Contractor to uncover or
to carry out additional tests upon work, which is then found
3-20 Section VII General Conditions of Contract

to have no Defects.
(e) The Project Manager unreasonably does not approve a
subcontract to be let.
(f) Ground conditions are substantially more adverse than
could reasonably have been assumed before issuance of the
Letter of Acceptance from the information issued to bidders
(including the Site Investigation Reports), from information
available publicly and from a visual inspection of the Site.
(g) The Project Manager gives an instruction for dealing with
an unforeseen condition, caused by the Employer, or
additional work required for safety or other reasons.
(h) Other contractors, public authorities, utilities, or the
Employer does not work within the dates and other
constraints stated in the Contract, and they cause delay or
extra cost to the Contractor.
(i) The advance payment is delayed.
(j) The effects on the Contractor of any of the Employers
Risks.
(k) The Project Manager unreasonably delays issuing a
Certificate of Completion.
41.2 If a Compensation Event would cause additional cost or would
prevent the work being completed before the Intended
Completion Date, the Contract Price shall be increased and/or the
Intended Completion Date shall be extended. The Project
Manager shall decide whether and by how much the Contract
Price shall be increased and whether and by how much the
Intended Completion Date shall be extended.
41.3 As soon as information demonstrating the effect of each
Compensation Event upon the Contractors forecast cost has
been provided by the Contractor, it shall be assessed by the
Project Manager, and the Contract Price shall be adjusted
accordingly. If the Contractors forecast is deemed
unreasonable, the Project Manager shall adjust the Contract Price
based on the Project Managers own forecast. The Project
Manager shall assume that the Contractor shall react competently
and promptly to the event.
41.4 The Contractor shall not be entitled to compensation to the extent
that the Employers interests are adversely affected by the
Section VII General Conditions of Contract 3-21


Contractors not having given early warning or not having
cooperated with the Project Manager.
42. Tax 42.1 The Project Manager shall adjust the Contract Price if taxes,
duties, and other levies are changed between the date 28 days
before the submission of bids for the Contract and the date of the
last Completion certificate. The adjustment shall be the change
in the amount of tax payable by the Contractor, provided such
changes are not already reflected in the Contract Price or are a
result of GCC Clause 44.
43. Currencies 43.1 Where payments are made in currencies other than the currency
of the Employers country specified in the PCC, the exchange
rates used for calculating the amounts to be paid shall be the
exchange rates stated in the Contractors Bid.
44. Price
Adjustment
44.1 Prices shall be adjusted for fluctuations in the cost of inputs only
if provided for in the PCC. If so provided, the amounts
certified in each payment certificate, before deducting for
Advance Payment, shall be adjusted by applying the respective
price adjustment factor to the payment amounts due in each
currency. A separate formula of the type indicated below applies
to each Contract currency:
P
c
= A
c
+ B
c
Imc/Ioc
where:
P
c
is the adjustment factor for the portion of the Contract
Price payable in a specific currency c.
A
c
and B
c
are coefficients
11
specified in the PCC,
representing the nonadjustable and adjustable portions,
respectively, of the Contract Price payable in that specific
currency c; and
Imc is the index prevailing at the end of the month being
invoiced and Ioc is the index prevailing 28 days before Bid
opening for inputs payable; both in the specific currency c.
44.2 If the value of the index is changed after it has been used in a
calculation, the calculation shall be corrected and an adjustment
made in the next payment certificate. The index value shall be
deemed to take account of all changes in cost due to fluctuations

11
The sum of the two coefficients A
c
and B
c
should be 1 (one) in the formula for each currency. Normally,
both coefficients shall be the same in the formulae for all currencies, since coefficient A, for the
nonadjustable portion of the payments, is a very approximate figure (usually 0.15) to take account of fixed
cost elements or other nonadjustable components. The sum of the adjustments for each currency are added
to the Contract Price. [To be transferred to the User Guide]
3-22 Section VII General Conditions of Contract

in costs.
45. Retention 45.1 The Employer shall retain from each payment due to the
Contractor the proportion stated in the PCC until Completion of
the whole of the Works.
45.2 Upon the issue of a Certificate of Completion of the Works by
the Project Manager, in accordance with GCC 51.1, half the total
amount retained shall be repaid to the Contractor and half when
the Defects Liability Period has passed and the Project Manager
has certified that all Defects notified by the Project Manager to
the Contractor before the end of this period have been corrected.
The Contractor may substitute retention money with an on
demand Bank guarantee.
46. Liquidated
Damages
46.1 The Contractor shall pay liquidated damages to the Employer at
the rate per day stated in the PCC for each day that the
Completion Date is later than the Intended Completion Date.
The total amount of liquidated damages shall not exceed the
amount defined in the PCC. The Employer may deduct
liquidated damages from payments due to the Contractor.
Payment of liquidated damages shall not affect the Contractors
liabilities.
46.2 If the Intended Completion Date is extended after liquidated
damages have been paid, the Project Manager shall correct any
overpayment of liquidated damages by the Contractor by
adjusting the next payment certificate. The Contractor shall be
paid interest on the overpayment, calculated from the date of
payment to the date of repayment, at the rates specified in GCC
Sub-Clause 40.1.
47. Bonus 47.1 The Contractor shall be paid a Bonus calculated at the rate per
calendar day stated in the PCC for each day (less any days for
which the Contractor is paid for acceleration) that the
Completion is earlier than the Intended Completion Date. The
Project Manager shall certify that the Works are complete,
although they may not be due to be complete.
48. Advance
Payment
48.1 The Employer shall make advance payment to the Contractor of
