The Liaison Committee was established by agreement between the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland (RIAI), the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI), and the Construction Industry Federation (CIF).

It was subsequently expanded by the inclusion of the Association of Consulting Engineers in Ireland (ACEI) and Engineers Ireland (EI).

The primary function of the Liaison Committee is to make recommendations to the Constituent Bodies for any amendment to the Agreement and Schedules of Contract issued by the RIAI in agreement with the CIF and SCSI that may be required

Other functions of the Committee include:

  • Publishing a Code of Practice for Tendering and Contractual Matters, which sets out accepted good practice for procuring Building Contractors to carry out Building Works in Ireland and other Contractual matters.

  • The publication of Dayworks Charges and Percentage Additions.

  • Recommendations for any amendment of practice the Committee considers desirable in connection with matters such as Tendering Procedures, Bills of Quantities (other than practice relating to the Standard Method of Measurment), Nominated Sub Contractors, Bonding Arrangements and Collateral Agreements.

  • Any other matter which may arise from the relationship between the members of the five bodies themselves or with any other bodies.
