Synopsis.

AIA Document C422–2018 is a Service Order that provides the Consultant’s scope of services, and other terms pertinent to the specific Service Order. It is intended for use when the Architect and Consultant have entered into a Master Agreement setting forth the common terms and conditions applicable to all Service Orders. C422–2018 is not a stand-alone agreement and must be used in conjunction with a Master Agreement. Additionally, C422-2018 incorporates by reference a preexisting owner-architect agreement known as the Prime Agreement. 

C422-2018 is coordinated for use with AIA Document C421™–2018, Master Agreement Between Architect and Consultant for Services provided under Multiple Service Orders. This document may be used with a variety of compensation methods. Use of C422 plus a Master Agreement creates a contract, referred to as the Service Agreement, that includes both the terms and the scope of services. The Master Agreement plus Service Order contracting method allows multiple scopes of services to be issued quickly without the necessity to renegotiate the terms and conditions of the Service Agreements. For use and execution of a document, see its instructions  » 

 

Purpose. 

AIA Document C422–2018 is not a stand-alone agreement and must be used in conjunction with a Master Agreement. Use of C422–2018 plus a Master Agreement creates a contract, referred to as the Service Agreement, that includes both the terms and the scope of services. The Master Agreement plus Service Order contracting method allows multiple scopes of services to be issued quickly without the necessity to renegotiate the terms and conditions of the Service Agreement.

 

C422–2018 incorporates by reference, either in the Master Agreement or in the Service Order, a pre-existing Owner-Architect Agreement known as the Prime Agreement. C422–2018, when combined with a Master Agreement, can be used with most Owner-Architect agreements including AIA Documents B101™–2017, Agreement Between Owner and Architect; B104™–2017, Abbreviated Agreement Between Owner and Architect; AIA Document B121™–2018 Master Agreement Between Owner and Architect for Service provided under Multiple Service Orders; and many others. Where a specific Prime Agreement is listed in C422–2018, the Prime Agreement is applicable only to that Service Order. Where the Prime Agreement is listed in the Master Agreement, that specific Prime Agreement will be applicable to all Service Orders.

AIA Document C422–2018 is not a stand-alone document and to become effective it must be executed as part of a Master Agreement. AIA Document C422–2018 has been coordinated for use with AIA Document C421–2018, Master Agreement between Architect and Consultant for Services provided under Multiple Service Orders.

Before transmitting Instruments of Service or other information in digital form, parties should establish protocols for that transmission.
