A number of early warnings were issued to the PM over a period of about 6 months. The PM failed to address the risks stated in the early warnings. He did not provide a response in writing nor did he attend the weekly risk reduction meetings for the stated period. The PM cancelled the risk meetings a day before it was scheduled.
The early warnings relate to free issue material supplied by the PM. The Contractor’s records indicate that not all material was issued. The PM on the other hand believe that everything was issued and that the Contractor lost material according to the PM’s records.
The project will be delayed and the PM is attempting to shift all the blame to the Contractor. The delays would have been mitigated if the PM responded timely to the early warnings.
Does an early warning warrant a response, either in writing or during risk reduction meeting?
What recourse does the Contractor have should the risks go unattended to by the PM? Notify a CE?
