This current project uses a case study approach to evaluate the eTendering systems of the Queensland Department of Public Works and Brisbane City Council against the technical and legal guidelines published in previous Construction Innovation research, with the aim of determining the level of compliance and promoting best practice. Additionally, this research will look at the legal and security issues for the formation and administration of building and construction contracts wholly within an electronic environment.
The research is focusing on several aspects of electronic contracting and administration, including:
- processes for electronic contract formation
- processes encompassing contract administration
- contract retention and archiving.
Through key case studies the research will support research into eContracting and contract administration and assist large enterprises and SMEs in the building and construction industry.
