Can a Partner advise the Core Group?
Yes. A Partner gives advice, information and opinion to the Core Group and to other Partners when asked to do so by the Core Group and when they identify something that would be helpful to another Partner. This advice, information and opinion relates to work that another Partner is to carry out under its Own Contract and is given fully, openly and objectively. The Partners show contingency and risk allowances in information about costs, prices and timing for future work (see Clause X12.3(8)).
