JCT’s Repair and Maintenance Contract is designed for use on individual projects that involve a defined programme of repair and maintenance works to specified buildings or sites. This contract is primarily for use by local authorities and other employers who regularly place small and medium-size contracts for jobbing work and are sufficiently experienced that an independent contract administrator is not required.
The pricing and payment structure can be flexible, as the employer can seek quotes on the basis of a fixed price, daywork, or other rates, using either a Schedule of Rates or all-in labour rates in a Schedule of Hourly charges. Payment can be made either by a single payment or by stage payments.
There is no provision for a contract administrator, so the employer is expected to be experienced in letting contracts for work of this kind and will typically be used to handling contractors’ accounts.
