The referee appointment process set out in section 17.5 of the General Conditions states that parties involved in a dispute have the option of either selecting their own three referee candidates for submission to the other party (Owner or Contractor), or asking the MMCD Association to appoint one.

Our strong preference is that the parties agree on the appointment of a referee of their own choosing. However, if they cannot agree on a referee, then MMCD will appoint a referee, if one is available at the time.

Contractors or municipalites may contact the MMCD office for more information.
