AIA Contract Documents are the most widely used standard form contracts in the construction industry. They facilitate communication among all the parties involved in construction, which makes it easier to produce a high-quality project in a timely and economical manner.

The documents all have numbers and are arranged within the following series:

A-Series Owner/Contractor Agreements
B-Series Owner/Architect Agreements
C-Series Other Agreements
D-Series Miscellaneous Documents
E-Series Digital Practice Documents
G-Series Contract Administration and Project Management Forms

If you are unsure which document is right for your needs, visit the AIA National document synopses website to read more about each document.
