There are several Standard Forms of Contract used across
the world. The most used in Mauritius are the FIDIC Conditions of Contract, the JCT, the
East African Model,
the World Bank Standards Conditions of Contract among others.
mandated to develop Standard Forms of Construction Agreements and Contracts
developed a model Contract for Minor Works to help
those who are embarking on small construction projects as well as SME
Contractors to have a handy form of contract which they can use to specify the
right, obligation and duties of both parties to the contract.
This Model Contract is different
from common Conditions of Contract in the sense that it is more
user-friendly and avoids the use of
complex terms and legal jargons. It has been drafted by professional
staff of the CIDB.
CIDB intends to develop other Standards Forms of
Contract for the construction sector.
