Contracts & Fees

Professional Service Agreement

Consulting engineers and geoscientists seeking to do business with the Government of Saskatchewan now have a standardized, efficient Professional Service Agreement (PSA).

Collaboration between the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - Saskatchewan and Government of Saskatchewan officials resulted in a standardized contract language PSA document.

Recommended Schedule of Fees

The Recommended Schedule of Fees to be charged for both "General Engineering and Geoscience Projects" and "Specialized Engineering Projects and Services in the Building Field" are meant to be a guideline for both Consultants and Clients.

ACEC-SK takes the position that Consultants and Clients are responsible for negotiating a fee based upon clear understanding of the project scope, terms for reference and risk assesment associated with success completing the project.

In 2017, ACEC-SK has opted to continue to 'hold the line’ on the recommended fees for consulting engineering services in Saskatchewan.  In the face of economic uncertainty, government restraint and sluggish activity in many of Saskatchewan's largest industries we feel the engineering community ought to continue shouldering some of the burden that all of Saskatchewan's business community is currently facing. 

While there are pressures to reduce professional service fees during periods of challenging economic circumstances, these pressures must be balanced with the continued health of Saskatchewan's consulting engineering and geoscience industry.  Companies must continue to offer competitive salaries to attract and retain high quality professionals and staff.  In addition, companies foregoing fee increases will still be required to absorb inflation1 and rising overhead costs. Maintaining adequate fees will ensure a strong, vibrant and competitive consulting community within the Province of Saskatchewan.
