Clause 63.1 states that ‘If the compensation event arose from the Project Manager or the Supervisor giving an instruction… the date which divides the work already done from the work not yet done is the date of that communication. In all other cases, the date is the date of the notification of the compensation event’.
Can this be interpreted to mean that if the PM gives an instruction and notifies a CE for a change in the works information i.e. additional work to be carried out, and the quotation is submitted and assessed after the work has been completed, it is contractually correct for the contractor to base his quotation on forecast defined cost as opposed to actual defined cost.
If so, then presumably the PM cannot insist on the contractor providing timesheets, invoices etc. to substantiate the quotation.
