Avoid the pitfalls of works and service contracts

In order to implement works and service contracts in accordance with current law, the client and the contractor must be familiar with and follow the statutory provisions. If they fail to do so, both sides may be faced with severe penalties. With clearly defined processes and 100 internal and external audits per year, FERCHAU collaborates with its customers to support them with both types of contracts. We guarantee individual and personal support for you with over 100 branches. Your local specialists will help you design, manage and implement your works and service contracts in accordance with the law and make sure that all process steps are followed. We give you our word – as well as the certified confirmation by DEKRA, an independent inspection institute.

What pitfalls are there if works contracts and service contracts are improperly executed?

Perfor­mance speci­fi­ca­tion

An inadequate definition of successful performance or the performance specification

Incorrect handling of the selection processes

The selection of the executor is the sole responsibility of the contractor in the contract for work or services. The client may not influence the selection.

Incorrect handling of the authority to issue instructions

The authority to issue instructions lies solely with the contractor in the works or service contract. The client may not issue direct instructions to the executors.

Lack of organisational separation

Giving executors assignments beyond the agreed trades. Integration into the client’s workflows is not permissible. The planning freedom lies exclusively with the contractor.
