Abstract: The Nigerian construction industry is beset with many problems, such as uncompleted projects and poor quality ofwork. Also the level of productivity is low, especially in projects handled by indigenous contractors. Investigation into the causes has identified two sets of variables termed structural and systemic, as being responsible. Structural variables which are inherently related to the conditions and practices within a given environment, were found be controllable,if special provisions can be made within the conditions of contract. The paper therefore examines these structural variables and relates them to provisions in the conditions of contract which undermine the performance of local contractors. It also suggests ways of improving the provisions to make them more effective.
