General Conditions of Contract 2023

In 2021 the Contractual Affairs Subcommittee (CAS), a part of the SAICE Project Management and Construction Division (SAICE PMCD), identifies a need to review and update, where necessary, the 2015 edition of the General Conditions of Contract (GCC 2015). 

GCC 2015 had ten primary clauses.

A preliminary discussion within the Committee recommended that we do not stray far from the existing content and layout. Employers, Engineers, and Contractors are familiar ad comfortable with the document. 

The task team was not required afterwards, such was the commitment and dedication within CAS that all changes, additions and/or omissions were presented to and interrogated by all members. Once this exercise was complete, as a sanity check, a clause-by-clause comparison of GCC 2015 vs GCC 2023 was done (and has been made available in that format for comment). 

The next step in the process is to request commentary from the various stakeholders and interested parties. To this end CAS have prepared 2 documents in pdf format (The GCC 2023 final draft and x10 clauses).

in order to publish the Conditions of Contract this year, we have a deadline of 30 March 2023 for all comments, criticism and suggestions. Please send these to GCC2023@saice.org.za using the excel template provided to enable CAS to consolidate all inputs received.

Commemorating Nelson Mandela Day 2023  

Today marks an important day in history as we commemorate Nelson Mandela Day. It is a day to remember and honour the legacy of a remarkable man whose impact on the world continues to resonate.

Nelson Mandela was not just an icon; he was a symbol of hope, resilience, and the power of forgiveness. His unwavering commitment to justice and equality inspired millions across the globe to stand up against injustice and fight for a better world.

On this day, let us reflect on Nelson Mandela’s teachings and strive to emulate his qualities in our daily lives. Mandela taught us that no matter how challenging the circumstances, we all have the power to make a difference. His message of unity, reconciliation, and compassion can transcend barriers and create lasting change.

Mandela once said,  “It is impossible until it is done. ” Let us remember this in our daily lives as we work on improving ourselves in our different spheres.

We must also acknowledge that Mandela’s work is far from complete. In an increasingly interconnected world, we are reminded of the importance of promoting equality, fighting against discrimination in all its forms, and standing up for those whose voices are often silenced. Mandela’s principles serve as a reminder that our fight for justice is ongoing and that we must continue to advocate for a world that upholds the values he championed.

Today, let us honour Nelson Mandela’s memory by committing ourselves to building a more inclusive, compassionate, and just society. Let us defy the limits of what we believe is possible and work towards a world where everyone is treated with respect and dignity.

As we celebrate Nelson Mandela Day, let us not only remember his extraordinary life but also recognize the potential within each of us to change the world in which we exist in.

In the words of Nelson Mandela himself, “Never, never, and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another.” Together, let us ensure that his vision becomes a reality.

Happy Mandela Day!
