In modern procurement there are many contributors to the design process, and it is important that the related contracts delineate their roles precisely. Clear allocation of decision-making depends on the specifi cation and other documents tying in with the contractual provisions, and on subsequent behaviour refl ecting what was anticipated in the package. All too often, perhaps because of shortage of time, insuffi cient care is given to fi nalising these key documents. This article 2 explores cases where the extent or level has not been clearly set out, sometimes with unexpected results. The projects covered are of varied scale, but all involve some allocation of design responsibly to the contractor and provide useful lessons for those involved in drafting tender packages
