The Africa Association of Quantity Surveyors (AAQS) is a constituent member of PROCSA (Professional Consultants Services Agreement Committee).  PROCSA publishes in electronic format only a generic client/consultant professional services agreement for most of the professional disciplines. The latest version is Ed 3.0 June 2012

The terms and conditions, Annexure A (Schedule) and Annexure B (Services) are now combined in one document for each of the following disciplines:

  • Principal Agent
  • Project Manager
  • Quantity Surveyor
  • Civil Engineer ( with or without quantity surveying)
  • Structural Engineer
  • Electrical Engineer (with or without quantity surveying)
  • Mechanical Engineer (with or without quantity surveying)
  • Wet Services Engineer
  • Landscape Architect
  • Construction Health & Safety Consultant
  • Development Manager (representing the client)
  • Blank document (to be populated for any other disciplines)
  • Other disciplines will be added in due course eg Fire Consultant, Interior Designer, etc

The cost is as follows :

  • Reference copy for each discipline ZAR South African Rand 150.00 including VAT of 14%
  • Subscriber copy for each discipline ZAR South African Rand 340.00 including VAT of 14%.  Subscribers pay a fee of South African Rand 95.00 per office monthly to Contracts on Demand. Contracts on Demand have secured the rights to distribute the PROCSA agreements
  • Non-subscriber copy for each discipline ZAR South African Rand 499.00 including VAT  of 14%

Populating the agreement electronically is much improved from the previous version with many new or improved features such as a collaborating services (where input changes may be made by more than one party), populating a specific agreement from another already populated agreement from a different discipline or from a previous project, etc

A matrix document listing the services of all the consultants will in due course be made available
