11.2.29 – PWDD is defined cost which the PM forecasts will have been paid by the Contractor before the next assessment date.
The question is with regards to People Costs (i.e Staff Salaries). Currently the Contractor applies for Staff costs to date + 1 months forecast for all staff. Assessment date varies every 4 weeks and is generally end of the month.
Should the staff costs be paid for the one month forecast?
Contractually I read this that the forecast staff costs should not be paid, because the staff are not paid until the end of the month and just outside the assessment date, therefore under 11.2.29 I do not see this having been paid by the Contractor before the next assessment date.
