Recommends that school districts include a legal plan in every school construction project. It discusses negotiating agreements with the project architect and construction manager early on; exercising due diligence in selecting the project team; determining proper levels of professional liability insurance; clarifying legal issues with the architect and the construction manager; predetermining methods of dispute resolution; reviewing non-technical contract provisions in bid packages; developing surety bonds for bid packages; and exercising care in handling non-responsible bidders, bid errors, and contractor disputes. Properly applying these measures can significantly increase the chances of completing a school construction project on time, within budget, and without litigation. (8 pages / 2003)
