Welcome to the Professional Consultants Services Agreement Committee (PROCSA) Website

Our Client/Consultant Professional Services Agreement comprises a suite of documents prepared to regulate the terms of engagement between the client and the consultants. It was compiled in the interests of standardisation and good practice in the construction industry on a mandate from the constituent bodies.

The Client / Consultant Professional Services Agreement comprises of the following:

  • Agreement: Terms and conditions
  • Annexure A: Schedule (schedule of project variables)
  • Annexure B: Services (Scope of Services specific to each discipline)
  • Further Annexures: As required and identified in the schedule which may, inter alia, include the relevant tariff of professional fees and schedule of disbursement rates etc.

The following Suite of Agreements are currently available:

• Architect • Structural Engineer • Electrical Engineer • Fire Consultant
• Landscape Architect • Civil Engineer • Quantity Surveyor
• Project Manager • Mechanical Engineer • Wet Services Engineer
• Construction Health & Safety • Development Manager
• Principal Agent (only) • Interior Designer • Blank

The ’Blank’ agreement is available for those disciplines not published.

Versions of the above Agreements at reduced cost for reference only are also available. These are termed Reference Documents.
A combined Matrix of services by discipline and by stage is also available, together with a combined Suite of all the Reference Documents.


The advantages of using a PROCSA Agreement are:

  • a consensus Agreement composed and accepted by all of the Constituent Bodies
  • provides for the services broadly required across the six stages of works
  • drafted locally for local and international use
  • includes for both services and deliverables
  • provides for indemnification of the service provider by the Client against claims from third parties (such as contractors)
  • The same terms and conditions and the same document format, are used for all disciplines for ease of understanding
  • sets clear limits to responsibility and liability
  • enables scope change during what are typically long-term projects
  • allows for effective dispute resolution
  • provides for a matrix of services across all the disciplines
  • defines the role of the development manager (the client)
