{"version":"0.3.0","atoms":[],"cards":[],"markups":[["a",["href","https:\/\/www.aiacontracts.org\/contract-documents\/6150861-architects-services-purchasing-agent-services-for-ffe","target","_new"]]],"sections":[[1,"p",[[0,[0],1,"B254"],[0,[],0," is a scope of services document that can be attached to any\nowner\/architect agreement. It establishes an agency relationship between the\nowner and architect, where the architect is granted the power to enter into\nFF\u0026E contracts with vendors on the owner\u2019s behalf. B254 places strict\nlimitations on the architect\u2019s power to act as the owner\u2019s agent. Before\nentering into contracts with vendors, the architect must provide the owner with\nthe description, prices, and quantities of FF\u0026E to be purchased. In\ncontracts with vendors, the architect is also required to include statements\n(1) indicating that it is acting as the Owner\u2019s purchasing agent regarding such\ncontracts, (2) identifying the owner as the purchaser, and (3) indicating that\nall warranties and guarantees shall be in the owner\u2019s name. The architect also\nmust keep the owner reasonably informed about FF\u0026E purchased on the owner\u2019s\nbehalf. In exchange, the architect is\ngiven all the protections of a disclosed agent acting on behalf of a principal.\nThe architect is not responsible for the vendors\u2019 poor performance and is\nrelieved of the owners\u2019 obligations with regards to vendors."]]]]}
