Calling all Engineers!
Collaborate on a committee that creates some of the highest quality standard documents specifically written for infrastructure projects in the United States
The CSI Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC) Drafting Committee liaison provides commentary on EJCDC Drafting Committee discussions, draft agreements and supporting documents. Commentary submitted should support CSI Guiding Technical Principles.
Deliverable #1: Submit commentary to EJCDC Drafting Committee and respond to any inquiries or other communications from the EJCDC Drafting Committee. Seek input from staff on any issues where there is no clear guidance provided by CSI Guiding Technical Principles or prior professional experience.
Deliverable #2: Where appropriate, recommend EJCDC Contract Documents that have been approved by the EJCDC Drafting Committee for recognition or endorsement by CSI, per the CSI Endorsement and Recognition Guidelines (see Volunteer Policy Manual Appendix A).
Term: The liaison’s term is 3 years. Liaisons may be reappointed once.
Time Commitment: The EJCDC Drafting Committee typically has three face-to-face meetings per year in February, June, and October. Face-to-face meetings are typically three days in length, consisting of one day for the full committee meeting, during which liaison reports are orally presented, and two additional days of subcommittee meetings where attendees work on drafting and updating documents. Remote participation in face-to-face meetings may be available, at EJCDC discretion. Preparation for these meetings will typically require up to 8 additional hours each.
Competencies: Professionals with experience using standard contract documents from any source in engineering projects. Preference will be given to engineers, or other professional discipline members with experience in engineer-led projects, particularly infrastructure, are also encouraged to apply. Legal training, CSI certification, engineering training, professional registration (PE), or familiarity with EJCDC content are not required, but will be preferred.
