Retain Commissioning Agent Services
GSA’s usual practice is to have the Construction Manager (CM) hire a subcontractor to act as the Commissioning Agent, resulting in no additional contract management responsibilities for GSA. In this case the CM will lead the process for acquiring commissioning services. There will be exceptions to this suggested practice, wherein GSA will lead the process to acquire a Commissioning Agent. In either case, the Commissioning Agent must be on board by the beginning of design development.
