As far as I understand, the Project Manager has full authority to change the scope of a Contractors’ work, whether it’s adding or removing work.
However, does the Project Manager have authority to remove work from the Contractor and then go out on tender for that same work?
In my case:
We are the Contractor on a Platinum Mine and shotcrete forms part of our original scope of work. The Project Manager now removed that task from us and is requesting tenders on this work.
How can we fight this?
