The Professional Services Contract is intended for use in the appointment of a supplier to provide professional services.  It can be used for appointing project managers, supervisors, designers, consultants or other suppliers under NEC contracts and can also be used for appointing supliers on non-NEC construction projects or for non-constructionprojects.  This document contains the core clauses, the relevant main option clauses, the secondary option clauses and the contract data.
