Abstract : The purpose of this report is to present an organizational and procedural framework within which the owner of a construction project might find refuge from construction claims. Although directed specifically toward the owner, the material presented herein also applies to the construction contractor seeking compensation for valid claims against an uncooperative owner. This report will illustrate some of the hazards in administering a construction contract with respect to claims and presents a systematic approach to prevent them or to minimize their effects.
