Can the Contractor recover costs under an NEC 4 ECC Option A contract when instructed for a revised CE quotation due to the orginal CE quotation not being accepted as it didn’t provide the level of detail required under the contract i.e SSCC breakdown?
The Client has had to stop work on site due to funding issues. The Contractor was issued a compensation event to stop works, make the site safe and demobilise. The compensation event quotation submitted hasn’t been broken down in any detail labour, plant, equipment in accordance with SSCC. The PM has instructed a revised quotation requesting the breakdown and the Contractor has responded requesting reimbursement to further produce the CE quotation. Is this allowed and if so what is deemed reasonable costs for providing CE quotation?
