Construction Contracts (WASH & otherwise)

We are looking at standardising our construction contracts for work (WASH and otherwise) that we undertake across Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and Asia. I would be interested to know from other NGO engineers/construction experts the type of contracts that you use. Would you use your own standardised organisational contract? Or do you see more standard contracts in use, such as FIDIC, NEC, etc.? Or maybe a mixture of both? I'm aware that the Multilateral Banks tend to use their own standardised FIDIC contracts, but I'm interested from a smaller NGO perspective on what exactly is done?
