Contract Administration


In March 2019 IESL successfully launched the CPD course “Contract Administration”. The course commenced on 03rd of March 2019 and will conclude on 23 th of June 2019. This CPD Programme is conducted by Eng. A. C. Rasiah  BSc (Eng),   Dip.Arbitration (Merit) (ICLP),   CEng.  FIE(SL),  MConsE(SL), Consulting Engineer, Arbitrator (ICLP, IESL), Adjudicator (CIDA, IESL)


The main objective of the training programme is;

  • To provide the contractual and legal knowledge required in the  execution of a construction contract and its administration

At present numerous problems such as delays, increase in costs, claims, and disputes arise in our construction contracts due to lack of knowledge about contracts by the Contract Administrator (Engineer/Architect/Quantity Surveyor or his delegated Assistant), Contractor or Client of the Conditions of Contract known as the express terms of a contract (written terms), and the Law governing the contract known as the implied terms of a contract (unwritten terms)

  • The course is intended to provide knowledge and understanding of contracts to minimize such problems, focusing mainly on the frequently occurring types of problems in our local construction contracts, in order to provide the maximum benefits to the participants from the course and avoid the frequently occurring disputes in our local construction contracts. Avoidance of disputes prevents losses in the time of completion of a construction project due to the avoidance of elaborate dispute resolving processes such as adjudication, arbitration etc. It must be noted that while an adjudication process may take a few months to conclude, an arbitration process may take a few years to conclude. This is detrimental to both the construction industry and the development of the country as a whole.


There are 54 participants partaking for the Contract Administration CPD Programme. IESL would like to thank the pool of Resource persons, CPD Committee and IESL CPD staff of Education Division for their exertion in conducting this course.

  • To provide awareness of new/latest developments in a subject area,
