My contract is an unamended ECC Option D. We propose to issue a VO to the subcontractor to work overtime outside the normal working hours as specified in the WI. This will incur additional defined cost but it will save the overall preliminaries due to earlier completion and hence a net saving to the contract. Does this scenario fall under clause 63.11 1st bullet i.e. Prices not reduced.
What if the PM does not accept our proposal, will the additional subcontractor’s cost be disallowed? Or PM is entitled to reduce the Prices as the CE is to reduce the total Defined Cost?
