This survey was undertaken at the request of EIC (European International Contractors) and FIDIC (Fédération Internationale des Ingénieurs-Conseils). As part of the process of revising the Red Book and harmonizing it with other FIDIC contracts, the purposes were to examine contract users’ feelings about contract policy in general and about the Red Book in particular; and to consider the way that the FIDIC Red Book is used in practice in order to discover what changes might be useful for those who use the contract. A survey questionnaire was prepared in consultation with EIC and FIDIC. The questions were tested and refined by discussing them with experienced practitioners and the questionnaire was distributed around the world with the assistance of EIC and FIDIC through their member associations. Because the questionnaires were distributed to organizations who subsequently duplicated them and forwarded them to others, it is not possible to gauge how many questionnaires were distributed. A total of 204 completed questionnaires were received.
