NEC3 ECC Option A - The PM has issued a PMI under clause 61.4 to submit a quotation and impact programme for the change. We subsequently provided both back to the PM for acceptance. Since this change has a large impact to the programme and costs, all Parties realised that it would take some time to agree this especially the cost element side. As such, the impact programme was then provided separately for approval to the PM to enable the works to progress whilst the costs were agreed. The PM has responded stating that the programme is agreed with the costs to be agreed through the CEQ process.
Does this pose any risk to us in terms of recovering the costs? Should we revert back to the original programme whilst the costs are agreed?
