German term or phrase: Abnahmemängel
Die Leistungen des Projektmanagers enden mit Übergabe / Übernahme des Bauwerkes durch den Bauherrn, ausgenommen ist die Kontrolle der Beseitigung von Abnahmemängeln, die Abrechnung bzw. Feststellung der Bauinvestitionskosten.

Abnahme ist hier im Sinne von "besichtigen/untersuchen" gemeint. Waere das vielleicht "defects found on inspection"?

deficiencies on delivery / contract deficiencies


Explanation:
When a completed construction is delivered, a report is usually lmade up of all deficiencies, that is, items which are not in accordance with the contract specification. That is why such deficiecies are often referred to as "contract deficiencies".

See: http://www.opticom.de/order/agb_E.htm
for a sample contract.
