Joint Contracts Committee


The Joint Contracts Committee (JBCC) was created in 1997 and carries out its business activities through a “not for profit” Section 21 company set up in terms the Companies Act No 61 of 1973. The purpose of the JBCC is to create and maintain a suite of contract documentation that provides for equality and fairness between all parties to the agreement.

The documents are widely used and have the approval of the CIDB.

Members are however cautioned about the tendency of some Principal Agents to alter the contents of the contracts, usually to the detriment of the contractor. All public sector works are subject to certain “State Provisions”. These are a set of standard amendments that are insisted upon and contain a number of controversial provisions including a waiver of all builder's liens.

Our Membership Services Manager, Bruce Lyle, is a member of the JBCC and would welcome any suggestions or concerns Members may have about the suite.
