Assessment guidelines
Produce a 4000-word coursework (+/- 10%) (excluding the list of references) which offers students the ability to demonstrate their developing knowledge and application of the teaching and learning material covered in weeks 1 to 11. It also encourages students to develop their thoughts and perspectives on theories and concepts.

You are requested to answer the below three questions. Your answers in order to be completed should count approximately 4000 total for the 3 below questions. Please answer all questions.

1) Local content is defined as benefit brought to a host nation through: a) workforce development: employment and training local workforce, and b) supplier development: procuring supplies and services locally and developing local supplier capacity. Some international forms of contract used for the procurement of construction work have local content clauses requiring a minimum percentage of the project value to reflect local content. You are requested to discuss the benefits and disadvantage of having local content clauses in a construction contract for a project in a developing country.

2) Ethics and corruption is increasingly important in the construction sector. You are requested to discuss the issues involved in ensuring the highest ethical standards, from the perspective of a UK based cost management professional services company planning to open a regional office in Abu Dhabi, to operate in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa.

3) Give a detailed description of Dispute Review Boards; Dispute Adjudication Boards; and Combined Dispute Boards. Reference should be made to FIDIC International Standard Form Contracts, and also Case Law, where applicable.

Assessment Criteria
Your assignment will be marked according to the following criteria:
1. Understanding and Reading: The depth of your reading (number, range and quality of sources) and understanding of it. You are expected to read the essential and further readings to support your argument/discussion; you cannot rely on personal opinion or unsupported statements.

2. Critical Analysis: The level of critical analysis in your writing and the quality of the argument developed. You cannot rely on simple description, but have to apply knowledge and theory from the readings to critically engage with the material.

3. Structure: Your ability to develop a clear, logical structure for your coursework which addresses the required points of the task and guides the reader. Your coursework should include a clear introduction, a cogently argued main body, and a conclusion that summarises the argument and answers the overall question.

4. Presentation and Referencing: Your ability to express yourself clearly in English using appropriate terminology, correct spelling and grammar. The extent to which your coursework is correctly referenced using the Harvard system of referencing in-text and with a reference list.
