Back to CMA-200 Instructions to Bidders for Construction Contract (Download)
Prepared by the Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC).
CMA-200, Instructions to Bidders for Construction Contract, provides instructions to prospective bidders, including instructions on information made available to bidders, site visits, pre-bid conferences, questions concerning the work and issuance of addenda, how to prepare and submit a bid, bid bonds, and the evaluation of bids and award of contract. CMA-200 also provides users with guidance in the preparation of Instructions to bidders for a specific contract.
The EJCDC Construction Manager as Advisor (CMA) document series is intended for projects in which the Owner’s primary representative during construction will be the Construction Manager as Advisor (CMA). The series is an alternative to the use of the EJCDC Construction series, on projects in which the engineer that prepared the design subsequently serves as the owner’s construction contract administrator. The Construction Manager as Advisor series of documents clarify the respective roles and responsibilities of the engineer and construction manager as advisor recognizing the contributions each makes to the design and delivery of a construction project. The CMA series is comprised of contract documents, administrative forms, bonds, and bidding/procurement documents.
EJCDC includes the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Council of Engineering Companies, the Professional Engineers in Private Practice Division of the National Society of Professional Engineers, the Associated General Contractors of America, and the participation of more than fifteen other professional engineering design, construction, owner, legal, and risk management organizations.
EJCDC documents are delivered in Microsoft Word format (file extension *.docx). Microsoft Word is required if you wish to edit the files.
