Do you know about the role of adjudicators in public construction contracts? Selected under a governmental programme, they are appointed to facilitate payments to enterprises that are parties to public construction contracts and subcontracts.
Pierre Brossoit was one of the first such experts designated by the government in 2018, when the programme was only a pilot project.
In the spring of 2022, he has collaborated with the Institut de médiation et d’arbitrage du Québec (IMAQ) on the production of videos, in French, explaining to contractors how to prepare for a hearing before an adjudicator. View the first video of this series:
