Downloadable WORD Document DBIA Document No. 560, Standard Form of Agreement Between Design-Builder and Design-Build Subcontractor -- Cost Plus Fee with an Option for a Guaranteed Maximum Price (2010 Edition) ("Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions under which the design and construction of a specified portion of the Project will be performed, and should be used when the parties intend that Design-Builder pay Design-Build Subcontractor the Cost of the Work plus a Fee, with or without a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP).

If there is uncertainty about Owner's Project Criteria, or it remains to be developed by Owner and Design-Builder jointly, a cost-plus/GMP contracting approach is desirable. If there is certainty as to Owner's Project Criteria, a lump sum fixed price for the completion of the Work may be suitable. In such case, the parties should use DBIA Document No. 565, Standard Form of Agreement Between Design-Builder and Design-Build Subcontractor - Lump Sum (2010 Edition).
