Can the Contractor submit quotations for other methods of dealing with a compensation event than the quotations required by the Project Manager?
Yes. The Contractor may submit quotations for alternative methods of dealing with the compensation event which he considers practicable. This procedure enables the Project Manager to consider different options for dealing with an event. For instance it may be beneficial to the Employer to achieve earlier Completion at a greater cost than an alternative of later Completion at a lower cost. It also allows the Contractor to submit quotations using methods other than those assumed in the Project Manager’s instruction. For instance, the Contractor may be able to use a specialised item of Equipment, which the Project Manager did not realise was available (see clause 62.1).
