There is a description of the term in the GENERAL LAWS OF MASSACHUSETTS (PART I. ADMINISTRATION OF THE GOVERNMENT. TITLE II. EXECUTIVE AND ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICERS OF THE COMMONWEALTH. CHAPTER 7. EXECUTIVE OFFICE FOR ADMINISTRATION AND FINANCE. Chapter 7: Section 42J. Resident engineers; assignment to building projects; cost estimators.): Section 42J. There shall be assigned to every building project under the supervision of the office a resident engineer. Resident engineers may be hired as permanent employees subject to the provisions of chapter thirty-one or as consultants exempt from said chapter thirty-one. No person shall be employed as a resident engineer unless at the time thereof he shall have had at least ten years experience in the construction and supervision of construction of buildings, or shall have a degree in engineering, architecture or a field providing equivalent expertise and at least five years such experience.
The resident engineer shall represent the commonwealth daily on the site of construction projects and shall be responsible for checking, inspecting and reporting to the project manager on a regular basis both in writing and orally as to events at the construction site and shall send copies of written reports to the designer on a regular basis.
The project manager may delegate to the resident engineer, subject to approval by the director, notice in writing to all parties in interest, and limits otherwise imposed by this chapter, the authority to make decisions regarding plans, specifications, and materials; the authority to represent the project manager at job meetings; and the authority to order minor changes and make equitable adjustments in the contract price.
The resident engineer shall report in writing to the project manager all problems, disputes, complaints or questions from or concerning designers, contractors or other personnel involved in the project.
The most suitable appears to be "постоянный представитель заказчика на объекте". Thanks.
