The supply portion of a chemical plant may be done on a lump sum, while the installation of the plant is on cost reimbursement, but with the contractor’s overheads and profit compounded as a lump sum. The work package approach is a variant of the lump sum method. It is suggested as one of the main options in the Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC 1995) where it is called a priced contract with an activity schedule. The contractor prepares a list of all the activities which they expect to carry out in undertaking the work, and each activity is priced as a lump sum.
Because projects are temporary organizations they entail risk and uncertainty (and sometimes opportunity). Thus to provide an appropriate incentive the contract needs to recognize this risk and include appropriate safeguards to protect the contractor (and indeed to enable the owner to share in the exploitation of any opportunities). The contract should be designed to encourage the owner and contractor to act rationally together to achieve their common objectives and the best outcome for both, within the context of the expected risk.
Because it is a temporary employment relationship, the owner will often employ resources from an agency, and will ask the agency (contractor) to do the work on their behalf. Effectively their ‘employees’ will be a company (contractor) rather than a person, what the Dutch would call a legal person rather than a natural person. But the owner should view these legal persons as much their employees as natural persons, and motivate them to achieve their project objectives. Levitt and March (in Williamson 1995) say this about the purpose of organizing: The problem of organizing [is] seen as one of transforming a conflict (political) system into a cooperative (rational) one.
