The quality specifications are the first initiative for building a notable partnership between the owner and the contractor of the project to manage a successful project. Specifications’ writing is one of the greatest challenges, where specifications play an important role in obtaining quality deliverables of the project. Specifications of the Projects of Consulting Services (PCSs) are different from specifications of engineering projects due to the difference in the characteristics between the consulting projects and engineering projects. This paper represents a model developed for evaluating the quality of the specifications of the PCSs from the consultant point of view. Owing to the great influence of the specifications on preparing good technical and financial proposals for the projects, the relation between the evaluation degree of specifications and the risk values added to estimate the price of the contracts is also discussed. The model is tested using data of 20 consulting projects.
