Abstract
    Rijkswaterstaat is the Dutch Directorate for Public Works and Water Management. Core business is the protection of the Netherlands against flooding and maintenance of the waterways in order to provide safe and unhindered shipping. To provide safe shipping one of the instruments Rijkswaterstaat uses is dredging. This implies the use of contracts between Rijkswaterstaat and the contractor, a dredging company. In the last few years there has been some conflicts between a Regional Rijkswaterstaat Department and dredging companies. In some of those cases the Geo-Information and ICT Department was asked for an advise by the Regional Department. As general conclusion it appeared to be that the dredging contracts were ready for a quality improvement. In this paper we show our experience with the dredging contracts and how Rijkswaterstaat will improve the dredging contracts in the year 2006. The ultimate goal is to implement a standard hydrographical related paragraph in the Rijkswaterstaat dredging contracts
