Scope of Work

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.

The Construction Owners Association of Alberta recognizes that COAA’s office in Edmonton is located within Treaty 6 Territory and within the Métis homelands and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. We further acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
