Contracts 101

Pre Workshop Presentation



  • Property Management exists to provide guidance and leadership on

    • Construction projects

    • Preventive and corrective maintenance issues

    • The purchase, sale, and lease of buildings

  • Today’s focus: setting up projects under a contract

    • Most of the work we do in property management

    • We want to set up projects as best as we can to protect your parish and the Archdiocese.

      • Self insurance makes this important

      • Clear scopes help both sides

      • No preferred contractors, so setup is especially important

The magic number

The Magic Number

  • Contract amounts under $25,000 do not require our involvement or the Archbishop’s signature.

  • Contract amounts over $25,000 require the Archbishop’s signature on the contract and our involvement helping you prepare the contract.

  • If it is under $25k, we are still more than willing to help you prepare the contract.

Contract process for 25k

  • Resource for contracts, guidance, and contacts

Standard contract

Standard Contract

  • Developed a suite of standardized contracts

    • Construction Projects

    • Service Agreements

    • On website

  • Use our standard contract if possible

    • They provide terms and conditions to help protect your parish contractually

      • Indemnity

      • Limit Change Orders within the scope

      • Provide minimum insurance levels

      • Address lead and asbestos concerns

  • Don’t use the standard contract

    • Projects requiring both architects and general contractors

    • Very large construction contracts (i.e. new church)

    • Modified AIA documents prepared by our attorney’s will be used instead

  • Unique contract situations?

    • We defer to our attorney’s remarks to complete the contract.

The standard contract idea

The Standard Contract Idea
