PSSCOC For Construction Works
The Public Sector Standard Conditions of Contract (PSSCOC) was
developed to enable a common contract form to be used in all public sector construction
projects. Standardisation will increase familiarity among users, reduce tendering efforts
and promote greater efficiency in contract administration. The PSSCOC is useful to
industry practitioners who are interested to tender for public sector construction
The PSSCOC for Construction Works, first published in
1995, had undergone several reviews. The second and third editions were launched in July
1999 and January 2004 respectively. The fourth edition was launched in March 2005 to be in
line with the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2004 which came
into operation in April 2005.
In subsequent editions, as part of the government's effort to obtain greater value for money in
government building and construction procurement, the PSSCOC incorporated a new
provision (Clause 19.4) to provide incentives for contractors to offer innovative
proposals which could result in cost savings.
The current version is the PSSCOC for
Construction Works (Seventh edition Jul 2014).
