Scope of Work Best Practice
Best Practice – currently in progress
A best practice to assist Contract Administrators in the assessment and application of the most appropriate contract strategy based on the specific circumstances of each project.
A scope of work (SoW) sets forth requirements for performance of work to achieve project objectives and the allocation of responsibilities for accomplishing the work. It must be clear, accurate and complete. It has to be read and interpreted by persons of varied backgrounds, including contractors, suppliers, project managers, construction managers, and the contracting officer, and in the worst case, by the courts. Therefore, every effort should be made to craft the SoW to eliminate ambiguity and duplication.
