A critical and comparative analysis of the 2017 FIDIC Contract agreement suite will be compared with other widely used forms of contract,  with emphasis on the differences in: approach to procurement, risk management comparative advantages, and when best to use different contacts by employers in different global geographical markets.

BIM Compliance in the Context of the FIDIC Contracts Suite
