ACEC-Ontario’s Advocacy Issues

Consultants are often in a position of be required to accept contractual risk that is beyond the scope of their services to an assignment and hence professional liability insurance requirements and regulatory responsibilities. It is ACEC-Ontario’s position that project risk should be allocated to appropriate parties to the assignment, recognizing regulatory and insurance requirements. Click here to learn more.

ACEC-Ontario has consistently advocated for fair and reasonable contract, terms, conditions and fees for professional services. The “fair and reasonable” approach seeks to highlight procurement and contractual practices that do not align with industry standards and “open for business” practices. Click here to learn more.

For on-time and on-budget project delivery, the selection of the most appropriate procurement model is essential, however Ontario public sector clients and its proponents do not have the benefit of a comprehensive and transparent process guiding these decisions. It is ACEC-Ontario’s position that such a process is essential to successful public procurement; the characteristics of the project should determine the model used. Click here to learn more. 

The early integration of engineering and design is essential for effective planning, design, procurement, and execution of public sector projects. This practice enables better scoping and pricing, contributing to fewer delays and change orders. Click here to learn more.
