Public Enterprises (PEs), especially in several developing countries, face many problems, including poor management of the interface between government and the PEs, unclear or multiple objectives, nepotism and poor remuneration. The performance of those PEs, which for one reason or another must remain in the public sector, continues to be a source of concern to stakeholders. This book sets out in some detail the mechanisms for determining enterprise performance and a framework for assessing enterprise productivity across the board. It explains the concept and methodology of the performance contracting system and provides case studies from five countries to clarify the approach.

UNIQUE FEATURES - Designed to be used as a desk top manual - Describes the main features of the contracts in the NEC family - Includes guidance on which NEC contract is appropriate for a particular project and how to prepare it - Useful for those who need more information about the NEC and its philosophy - Includes exercises at the end of several chapters to stimulate discussions about the many factors that need to be considered in choosing the right NEC contract BACKGROUND INFORMATION The last decades of the twentieth century saw huge changes in construction in the UK, particularly in procurement methods and contract strategy. In this book the author describes these changes as a construction reformation and suggests that the advent of the NEC played an important part in promoting those changes. Since its introduction to the construction sector in 1991, the NEC has been highly recommended in the Latham Report and more recently by the Office of Government Commerce and is now widely used on many small and large projects in the UK and worldwide. ENSURING PROJECT OBJECTIVES In this guide, Bill Weddell, a long standing member of the NEC Panel and a highly respected consultant and trainer on the NEC utilises his skills and wide knowledge of the NEC to provide new and existing users with guidance on how to select and implement NEC contracts to suit differing project needs and objectives. ACCURATE CONTRACT STRATEGIES This guide explains in a concise and practical manner how to decide on the appropriate contract strategy for any given project and how to prepare the contract document for each type of NEC contract. It describes each of the documents and explains the selection methods for the various options and how these are used to produce the contract document. The book also clarifies some of the distinguishing features of the NEC contracts in contrast to the more traditional standard forms and explains how the management procedures in each contract can be used to achieve the Employer's objectives by effective control of time, cost and quality. THE READERSHIP This guide is a valuable tool for anybody involved in the NEC supply chain including clients, consultants, contractors, subcontractors, project managers, quantity surveyors, adjudicators and service suppliers - across the complete spectrum of construction activity. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Bill Weddell was on the original NEC Working Group and drafting team and has been involved in the later development of the NEC family of contracts up to the publication of NEC3. He has long experience of both design and construction of major civil engineering works including highways, bridges, docks and harbours, tunnels and sea defence works. He was Head of Contracts for a firm of consulting engineers and is now a contract consultant and runs training courses on the NEC.

Government Contracts 4th edition is a further maturation and refinement of a work that has now been in existence for some thirteen years. It is Australia’s definitive legal text on all levels of government contracting, which focuses on the legal issues that may arise in connection with government contracts and which have no parallel in the private sector. It explains the law in a manner that government contract managers and their private sector counterparts doing business with government, will find indispensable. Presented in plain English it is also accessible to the lay reader and lawyers and law students will also benefit from the up to date case law, relevant policy developments and legislation relating to government contracting (principally procurement). Authoritative and respected Government Contracts has been referred to in a number of cases, both in State and Federal courts in the High Court and in government policy documents. New material in this 4th edition includes: The implementation at Commonwealth and at State and Territory levels of Chapter 15 (government procurement) of the Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement. Implementation measures are discussed in Chapter 1 and the practical consequences of the new procurement regime are explored in Chapter 7 on tendering. Issues of government immunity from legislation take up a substantial portion of this new edition, at the general level in Chapter 4 and in particular application to the all-important Trade Practices and Fair Trading legislation in Chapter 6. Chapter 6 also includes a new table showing how this legislation applies to government at all levels. The current status of derivative immunity following the High Court's decision in Baxter. Discussion of the status of contracts made by regulatory bodies to settle alleged breaches of relevant legislation by the regulated entity. Whether government can promise to compensate a company for taxes it has had to pay . A discernible trend toward not allowing failure to follow legislation to result in an underlying transaction being invalid. Treatment of tendering in Chapters 7 and 8 covers new Australian case law and a succession of cases from other countries with similar legal systems to Australia, in particular Canada. As always with Seddon’s work, a careful re-consideration of every aspect of the book has been undertaken providing clarity and comprehensive sources for the reader. This new edition is current to 31 March 2009 and is an indispensable resource for lawyers, government contract managers and their private sector counterparts.

This book aims to explain the principles of contract law for the businessman, and to put those principles into their commercial context. Anyone involved in commercial transactions needs at least a basic understanding of the principles of contract law - the legal framework for all commercial activity. A lack of such a basic understanding at best results in a business which is less competitive and ultimately less profitable than it should be, and at worst can have expensive and sometimes disastrous commercial consequences.
