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.

ACEC‐SK has approved a modest 1.9% fee rate increase in 2018, reflecting the province’s Consumer Price Index (CPI).

Based on recent provincial economic uncertainty and sluggish actvity in many of Saskatchewan’slargest industries, the consulting engineering
industry chose to shoulder some of that burden by not increasing rates the previous three years (2015,2016, 2017).

During this time the industry still had to absorb rising overhead costs. The modest 1.9% increase in recommended fees this year, tied to the Consumer
Price Index, will help consulting engineering firms mitigate these increased costs.

In order to align the Recommended Schedule of Fees document with its sister organizations in Western Canada, you will note the Engineering Categories have been renamed E1 – E7, replacing the former Engineer A – F. As well, a new engineering category, E7, has been added to appreciate the value of highly specialized engineering services.
