Getting Paid and Managing Cash Flow in Construction


Product Overview


Payment in the construction industry is a problem. This creates problems for both the owner and the contractor as well as the other participants involved with the project (consultant, subcontractors, sub-subcontractors and suppliers).

The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) and the CanadianConstruction Association (CCA) publish standard contracts and guides for the construction industry.

In this half-day course the payment process in standard contracts (CCDC-2 Stipulated Price Contract, CCA-1 Stipulated Price Subcontract, CCA-19 Stipulated Price SubSubcontract) will be reviewed along with contract language from non-standard contracts which can delay payment.

It is important to recognize when your client is trying to work language into the contract which delays payment (pay-if-paid, pay-when-paid, “notwithstanding” clauses).

Guides covered by the course:

  • CCA 28 – A Guide to Improving Cash Flow in the Construction Industry
  • CCA 50 – A Prime Contractors Guide to Project Financing and Payment Security
  • CCA 53 – Trade Contractors Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts
  • CCA Banking Guide for the Canadian Construction Association
  • CCDC 12 – Project Financial Information Disclosure Form

Who should attend?

Anyone who is involved with billings and payment: managers, project managers, project coordinators, project accountants of all levels will benefit from this course

Duration – 1/2 Day – 4 Hours
