Construction Documents General Notes: AIA Document A201™ general conditions

    I would like to get some advice. I am thinking about adding this statement to my construction documents general notes: "The AIA Document A201™ general conditions set forth the rights, responsibilities, and relationships of the owner, contractor, and architect. As part of the contractors "Work", the contractor shall review and agree to adopt the latest version of the AIA Document A201™ general conditions based on the date of the original signed and sealed construction documents." My reasoning behind this is that there are occasions where contractor do not use AIA family of documents and therefore the general conditions for construction are not available to reference when a contractor or owner does not follow procedures, understand the construction process or definitions. I believe this would be good to have as part of my construction documents general notes, especially if no specification manual is provided for smaller projects. I addition, should I add that the AIA Document A201™ general conditions shall superceeds all conflicting language herein?
