Our Subcontractor has raised CE1 for 2 weeks delay regarding a specific activity lets say called ‘Activity A’. Activity A is on the critical path. This CE has been notified and we the Contractor are within our period of reply to either accept / decline.
At this point we agree that this is a CE to the Subcontractor, however…
We have recieved a PMI from our client to de-scope ‘Activity A’ which we have communicated to our Subcontractor through a compensation event 60.1. All within the same Accepted Programme and period of reply for CE01.
I the Contractor know that ‘Activity A’ is de-scoped as does the Subcontractor, we both know it has no effect to the Defined Cost to date but the forecast (back of programme) has a cost impact / Completion Date.
- Reject the CE as this does not effect the defined cost / completion date
- Accept the CE and recieve a quotation which presumably would be £0
Or any other souliton ?
This is an NEC ECS Option A.
