Applies to:

This is a known issue which will affect existing 2011 project management sections that have been updated to the 2016 version.

The contract picker does not update even after you action all of the JCT 2016 update notifications.

Solution:

Ignore the contract picker - this is not published with your document.

How to check you have the JCT 2016 project management sections in your job?

The project management sections in your job will be updated to the 2016 version if:

  1. NBS have released the 2016 version of the project management sections you are using.
  2. You have accepted any update notifications pending against the project management sections (00-05-10 to 00-80-70).
    What is Update?
  3. If you open 00-20-70 Works Contract the first clause will indicate the date of the publication e.g. 2016 edition.
