The attached presentation from  York Region is for information only to assist members understand how free trade agreements may impact procurement of services

The MEA, working together with CEO (Consulting Engineers of Ontario), has developed these documents which are model templates in Microsoft Word (.doc) format intended for the use and customization by municipalities arranging with consultants to contract for municipal engineering services.

Note: These documents are guidelines for the retention of Consultants services and should be reviewed by each municipality’s legal and purchasing departments to ensure that any unique municipal requirements are addressed. The CEO and MEA do not assume liability from the use of these agreements.

The 2006 MEA-CEO Long Form Agreement is suitable for design, tendering, and construction oversight services. A guide is provided for modifying the template to reflect the individual municipality, its policies for accountability and payment, and those of the consultant.

A standard agreement is used when engaging Consultants that provide professional engineering and other related services where a fee is to be paid. The agreement may include one or more schedules which can be compiled in different ways to reflect the scope of services required for different types of projects. The basic agreement contains the front page (job description), general conditions, compensation and disbursements and the last page for signatures.

The 2011 MEA-CEO Short Form Agreement is suitable for shorter duration consulting tasks that are generally of a very specific nature.
