As PM & QS on our current scheme, we have been notifying Compensation Events within PMI’s using the following wording;
As Project Manager, I instruct the Contractor in accordance with clause 14.3, to carry out the following change to the Works Information;
I also notify the Contractor that this is a compensation event in accordance with clause 60.1 (1) and 61.1.
Please ensure that your quotation relating to the above is issued within 2 weeks as per clause 62.3 and as per clause 62.2 comprising of proposed changes to the Prices and any delay to the Completion Date and Key Dates assessed by the Contractor.
The Contractor has failed to respond to any of these to date (ll time barred) and is stating the reason for this is that each CE should be notified seperately from the PMI in accordance with 13.7.
My previous understanding was that 13.7 is intended to ensure CE’s are not lost in general communications involving oter matters, not to prevent succinct management of change as I believe we have employed to date, by clear and unambiguous CE notification within the body of a PMI.
Thoughts very much welcome.
