The latter is normally either nominated by the client on the basis of the contractor’s previous experience of management contracting or is selected by competition based upon tenders obtained from a number of suitable contractors for (a) the management fees and (b) prices for any additional services to be provided before or during the construction period (unless to be paid for on a prime cost basis, in which case the tenders will include percentage additions required to the respective categories of prime cost).
