Instructions: E205™ – 2022, Architects’ Scope and Responsibility Matrix Exhibit



AIA Document E205-2022 is an exhibit that is intended to be used in situations where a Design Architect and Architect of Record perform services concurrently on a project. E205–2022 is not a stand-alone document and must be attached to an agreement as an exhibit. E205–2022 contains standard architectural services and a responsibility matrix where the architects can indicate the degree of responsibility they will have for each service. E205-2022 is part of the following set of documents that are intended for projects involving a Design Architect and an Architect of Record. 

B111™-2022, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Design Architect

B111™-2022, Exhibit A, Design Architect Services

B112™-2022, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect of Record

E205™-2022, Architects’ Scope and Responsibility Matrix


E205-2022 may be attached to B111-2022 or B112-2022 when each architect has a prime agreement with the Owner. E205-2022 can also be attached to a C401TM-2017, Architect/Consultant Agreement in situations there is one prime agreement with the Owner and the architects have a consulting agreement. Refer to AIA Document B511-2022, Guide for Projects Involving a Design Architect and Architect of Record for more information.

Completing E205–2022.

The B511-2022, Guide for Projects Involving a Design Architect and Architect of Record provides an in-depth explanation of how to complete E205-2022. It should be noted that while E205-2022 has prompts for an Owner, Design Architect, and Architect of Record, it is unlikely that all three of these entities will be parties to the same agreement. Rather, E205-2022 could be a common exhibit to B111-2022, Owner/Design Architect Agreement and B112-2022, Owner/Architect of Record Agreement where the two architects have independent contracts with the Owner. Alternatively, E205-2022 could be used as an exhibit to a consulting agreement between the two architects. These relationships are further explained in the B511 guide.
