The Project Manager should be looking at all Defined Costs as stated in 11.1 (23) (Option C). Any costs which are not Defined Costs will be treated as included within the Fee (52.1)
So let’s have a look at what you’ve been applying, starting from the top.
I very much doubt you’ll get this one through as Defined Cost, although team building is very important to a Project, this isn’t something which has helped provide the subcontract works nor is entertainment an item within the SCC.
- NEC Training
This will not be considered as a Defined Cost as this is something which will be considered as included within the Fee %. You’ll find that the SSC will state the only training recoverable is safety training, so this is more your CSCS card, working at height etc…You could include training under meeting the requirement of the law also. NEC training doesn’t meet that criteria…
Yes should be recovered. The PM will ask how this is calculated i’m sure (Remember GDPR!). See People, Payments in relation to people for;
Should be included in your Working Area overhead. If you haven’t made an allowance for this it will considered as included within the Fee %.
