AIA Releases New Standard Form Contract Documents
November 17, 2009

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) recently announced the release of the new C191â„¢-2009, Standard Form Multi-Party Agreement for Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), which provides for a collaborative working relationship among parties involved in a design and construction project and utilizing the IPD delivery model. With this new agreement the parties execute one coordinated and integrated agreement that clearly sets forth the parties’ roles and responsibilities in delivering a project consistent with the principles of IPD.

In addition, the AIA released B108â„¢-2009, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect for a Federally Funded or Federally Insured Project, and a new document, B202â„¢-2009, Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Programming. Collectively called the “4.2 Release,” these three documents expand the extensive library of AIA Contract Documents and build on more than 100 years of experience in defining the contractual relationships in the design and construction industry.

With the new C191-2009 Standard Form Multi-Party Agreement for Integrated Project Delivery, the individual success of each party is directly tied to a project’s overall success. The architect and the contractor, as well as any other non-owner parties, earn profit through the achievement of the owner’s specified goals. This method of compensation promotes “good for the project” behavior and encourages all parties to work through disputes as they arise rather than assigning blame.
