The Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC) is a coalition of stakeholders in the project delivery process who have developed a set of engineering and construction contract documents with a specific focus on horizontal infrastructure in the United States. The EJCDC effort reflects a contract perspective that is more closely aligned with the engineer for engineer-lead construction. The EJCDC document set is alternative to a perceived bias in AIA documents for water and waste water horizontal infrastructure projects.
EJCDC is a joint venture of three major organizations of professional engineers and contractors:
- The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC)
- The National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE)
- The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
EJCDC has existed since 1975 to develop and update fair and objective standard documents that represent the latest and best thinking in contractual relations between all parties involved in engineering design and construction projects. EJCDC includes a major portion of the professional groups engaged in the practice of providing engineering and construction services for engineer-lead constructed projects, and includes the participation of more than 15 other professional engineering design, construction, owner, legal, and risk management organizations.
