Subject: questionnaire on the use of FIDIC, including its acceptance and modifications on contracts in the construction business
I am Hemant Sharma, originally a renewable energy project professional having worked with leading Hydropower equipment manufacturers. Currently, I am pursuing an accredited MBA at one of the world’s top 100 business schools, GEM – Grenoble Ecole de Management. As part of my MBA program, I have chosen an academic research project related to international business in the construction industry.
Project Aims: The objective is to study (as applied to FIDIC):
- the impact of legal systems on international contracts,
- the development of standard contract conditions, and
- its acceptance by the international contracting community (including contract professionals supporting Employers, Contractors as well as consulting Engineers).
This study may act as a guide for contract professionals – developing contract proposals or managing construction projects – in an international environment, exposed to legal systems impacting on their contracts.
Data sharing: Any data (including personal details) are being collected through this questionnaire on FIDIC only for academic purposes and shall not be published other than in an aggregated way. The results of the survey shall be available on request.
