Monitor the Design Joint Venture’s (DJV) compliance with the terms and conditions of the Design Services Agreement (DSA). Inform the Design-Build Manager and the Contract Manager of any identified deviations and prepare formal notifications to the Designer.

Review the merit of the delay notifications submitted by the DJV. Formally validate or refute with the project’s Design-Build Managers’ prior approval.
