We have raised a notification of a compensation event. The Project Manager did not respond in the timeframe. I then reminded the PM that he hasn’t responded. The PM still did not respond to this reminder within the time-frame specified.
My assumption is that the CE is treated as accepted and therefore I will provide a quotation.
My question is : Do I need to reply to the PM and inform him that the CE is accepted, or do I just stay silent and submit a quotation in due course and have the discussion then?
The reason for staying silent is that the contract (NEC3) doesn’t specifically say I have to notifying him that it’s a CE and there maybe another CE with the same scenario (PM not responding to the notification) so I don’t want to alert this to the PM. The relationship is non-existent so nothing to gain by being upfront and proactive until required. Strictly administering the contract as it is.
