Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Contract Law and Legal Definition

An engineering, procurement, and construction contract is a fixed-price, schedule-intensive construction contract. This is also termed as a turnkey contract. This is typically used in the construction of single-purpose projects, especially when the contractor agrees to a wide variety of responsibilities, including the duties to provide for the design, engineering, procurement, and construction of the facility. This contract enables to prepare start-up procedures; to conduct performance tests; to create operating manuals; and to train people to operate the facility.
