NEC ECC: Are rates used in SSoCC also subject to direct fee uplift under NEC4 Option A?

If we have a day rate for an operative in the SSoCC, when valuing a CE quotation would the people cost generated by using this rate then be subject to the direct fee %?
This is an NEC4 Option A contract

In short ‘Yes’. Under NEC4, there is only one fee percentage (whereas under NEC3, there were two) and it is applied to the change in Defined Costs when a compensation event occurs.
