On the basis of this Agreement, individual orders shall be issued against requirements. As with on-demand contracts, the framework agreement may or may not set a minimum consumption of goods/services or a minimum order value.

Although the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contract and the EPCM (Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management) contract have been present in the construction industry for many years, confusion remains as to the fundamental differences between these contracts, the role that each party must play and the timing of when a contract must be used in relation to the other. .
