Closing remarks and end of Conference
18th September 2014, Thursday, Day Two
The engineering, procurement and construction sector
(EPC) features some unique challenges.
• Cost overrun and failure in maintaining schedules are often a result of
delays in engineering approvals, site handover and modifications during
project execution
• Acute and growing shortage of manpower, including those at planning
stage
• One sided contract documents with excessive risk passed on to EPC
contractor
• Lack of proper bidding framework to include qualitative consider-
ations; Competitive contracts often do not provide for superior quality
equipment that may cost more
