ARIDO update on ORC Consultant Clause 3.5

Published by Julia Salerno, November 29, 2010.

ARIDO is pleased to announce that following a meeting on November 8 with senior representatives of the Ontario Realty Corporation, the ORC has agreed to withdraw the clause related to the Post Tender Estimate responsibility within the Consultant Contract.

This decision is a result of ongoing discussions between ARIDO and design industry partners (OAA, CEO, and the ORC), all involved in the Strategic Opportunities Committee (SOC). The SOC is very pleased with ORC's decision and sees it as a positive result arising from the commitment by the parties to continue dialogue through the committee even when facing issues as contentious as this one has been. Members of the SOC will be finalizing a joint communiqué in the coming week on this matter to ensure a clear understanding of ORC's decision and how this relates to existing Consultant Contracts. 

At this point in time, however, it is confirmed that GC 3.5 has been withdrawn from the ORC Consulting Contract. If you have any questions or encounter any problems in this regard please contact Susan Wiggins at
