The Architect’s Appointment Committee was set up with the objective to address and promote practice needs/tools towards creating a conducive environment for healthy architectural practice.
Practice – To provide practitioners with practice needs / tools, e.g. publication of the Architect’s Scope of Service Matrix on SIA website, review of the SIA Conditions of Appointment and Architect’s Services and Mode of Payment to address new scope and areas of professional liability, and to be in line with current legislation, including conversion of the SIA Conditions of Appointment And Architect’s Services And Mode of Payment to an electronic version (“eContract”).
Procurement – To provide an avenue for practitioners to give feedback and participate in dialogue with government agencies as well as private bodies/developers on procurement issues primarily involving (i) value of design and ethical conduct of design competitions; (ii) selection criteria; (iii) the proposed terms and conditions of the consultancy agreement; and (iv) any other terms which are inappropriately applied to consultants.
