Prepared by the Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC).
CMA-550, Notice to Proceed, is used to notify the contractor that it may proceed with construction as of a specified date. If no Notice to Proceed is issued, then the contract times commence on the 30th day after the effective date of the contract. See Paragraph 4.01 of CMA-700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract (“General Conditions”), for the governing provisions regarding commencement of the contract times and use of the Notice to Proceed.
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.
