The Contractor has submitted a clause 32 programme which has been accepted (Jan '18). This represents the latest Accepted Programme and the one that the effects of CE’s, progress and the Contractor’s own delays are shown. Two further months have gone by where the Employer has not accepted further revised programmes for a variety of reasons, so the latest accepted programme is still the one referred to above (Jan '18). However as time has gone by the Contractor has correctly shown against this programme the effects of delays that have since been judged to be the Employer’s liability amongst many other things. What we have, as you can see, is a programme that has a mix of all manner of delays etc in it.
The latest CE that is being assessed is for delays that occurred prior to the latest Accepted Programme but those effects have already/since been shown on the programme and accepted. Therefore the latest planned Completion already has the effects of the CE events included in it so how does the Contractor assess the effect of the CE alone against his latest accepted programme and show the effect on planned Completion when planned Completion already has some of the effects of the CE and other events included. You can see the circular problem!
