The AIA's New Program Management Contract Documents Family

Learn about the newest family of AIA's Contract Documents for a Program consisting of multiple projects needing a single coordinated and managed effort.


This course will explore the unique features of Program Management delivery including related AIA contract agreements used for the implementation of construction projects in a Program. You will examine the roles and responsibilities of the Program Manager, Design Manager and Architect(s) of Record on a construction project, learn about the contractual relationships and liabilities set forth in the AIA’s newly published documents, and review how these documents can be utilized for projects not in a Program. Speakers will provide real-world private and public-sector Program examples.
