  • Realistic allocation of risks
  • Open communication & incentives for cooperation
  • Partnering
dispute resolution board
Dispute Resolution Board
  • An impartial third party at the onset of any potential dispute can bring real benefits, support relationships and bring a collaborative and creative problem-solving attitude to the project.
  • The third party can be used to facilitate negotiations, discussions, consensus-building and relationship-building, or to manage existing or potential difficulties in a wide variety of situations
  • The dispute board members are appointed at the outset of a project by the parties as individuals whose views and decisions will be respected.
  • Dispute Resolution Boards (DRBs) are typically a panel of three neutrals appointed by the parties that become part of the project team.
  • They attend periodic meetings, review essential project documents and assist in the identification and resolution of issues and potential problems.
  • DRBs are usually, but not always, established in the contract documents. A dispute is presented to a DRB at a hearing, and the DRB’s determination is generally presented as a recommendation or a non-binding decision.
  • The readily available dispute resolution system to handle those disputes not only will allow the project to continue with little loss of time and money, but it will also allow the Parties to continue to work together on the project after an understanding is reached or a neutral ADR Specialist renders a decision
the partnering process
The Partnering Process
  • Creating a cooperative team approach
  • Partnering is a voluntary process, and joint costs are typically shared by the parties
  • Partnering includes working together as a team, developing a common set of project goals that the combined project team supports
  • Open communication and access to information, empowering participants to resolve issues at the lowest appropriate organizational level,
  • Reaching decisions and solving problems quickly and by consensus
  • Maintaining the relationship throughout the project
