INTRODUCTION

Contract Management is a unique and important discipline of Project Management. It is, in fact, emerging as a discipline which is a blend of administrative, technical and legal aspects, with a flavor of art. Many of the problems in the Management / Administration of Contracts arise from the attitude of the owner’s engineers and the contractors towards each other and to the work, although it has to be appreciated by both that they have a common objective of completing the work within the time specified and the rates quoted. During the implementation of the contract, both have to work towards the fulfillment of the objectives specified in the Agreement. It will be in the best interest of the project that the Contract Management is handled by the owner or the appropriate authority with tact and care without getting into unnecessary disputes with the contractor or allowing undue benefits or advantages to him. The whole process should be gone through under the provisions of the Indian Contract Act, 1872 (amended by Act No.4 of 2003) and The Arbitration & Conciliation Act 1996. The price of good Contract Implementation is indeed Eternal Vigilance.

INTRODUCTION

By 2050, the human population is projected to increase to 9 billion people and it is estimated that 70% of additional food has to be produced in order to feed the humanity over the next 40 years. Water demands increase not only for food production but also for other sectors like industry, domestic, power etc to meet the needs of the increased population. The role of agriculture is more important in resolving the worlds water problems since it is the biggest consumer of water. 70 percent of the available freshwater is being utilized by the agriculture sector worldwide and it is more in case of developing countries including India. As far as India is concerned, an irrigation potential of about 115 mha has been created out of the ultimate irrigation potential of 139.5 mha and but the efficiencies of these irrigation systems are very low. Agriculture will have to improve the performance of both irrigated and rainfed production. With a growing population, agriculture will face more comptetion from Industrial and domestic water users. In this context, there is an urgent need to resolve the water problems through smarter agriculture practices and better water management including modernization of irrigation systems which enable the rural people to have a better livelihood opportunity, through improved food grain production. The technical solutions to produce “more crop for drop” do exist which require political will and investments to improve the rainfed as well as irrigated food production.

INTRODUCTION

Quality is the totality of features and characteristics of a product or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs. For construction, the needs must be defined by the client. The inclusion of services is pertinent to construction, where both designers and contractors supply services as well as the product i.e. the completed work. Quality Assurance draws utmost attention to ensure the structural safety of different salient components of the project so that the objectives set are achieved during their Operation and Maintenance period. Quality Assurance includes all the activities concerned with the attainment of quality, process designed to increase confidence in a product’s ability to achieve the stated objectives. A number of projects are being taken up in various sectors related to Irrigation, Hydro-power, Water supply for drinking in Rural and Urban Areas, Highways, Buildings etc. The benefits that are expected from these projects can be derived only after their completion with all the care taken in respect of Quality Assurance. Otherwise, the Operation and Maintenance costs for the projects run high resulting in disappointment during their performance. Quality Assurance includes Quality Control, Quality Management both by in-situ and laboratory tests including destructive and non-destructive tests.
