When you are tendering on a construction project, or at any time in the project you want to be sure that all of the trades and contractors are working on the same set of documents. The best way of doing so is to utilize a contract document log that is continuously kept up to date. But what is a contract document log and why should it be used?
A contract document log is a list of all of the documents available on a construction project. It tracks the name, number, issue date and responsible party for each document. The purpose of it is to make clear what the latest set of drawings and specifications are and who they are issued from. Typically contractors keep this list to include with a construction tender bid in order to avoid any issues about what set of drawings they are working off of.
