For Clarification this is not regarding pricing a Compensation Event.
We are currently in discussion with a Main Contractor to enter into a NEC3 Option A ECS. He is also on an option A ESC to a Main contractor who is on an Option A ECC to the client - essentially I am a sub-subcontractor.
He is insistent that I must provide him with a fully detailed Defined Cost Breakdown to my Tender Sum prior to him letting my subcontract. I was not asked for this when I tendered. We have already been working for 3 months on the project under a interim order/letter of intent. They have now started picking and choosing elements of my works information to omit and have started to contra-charge me his cost + his Fee stating if he knew my defined cost he would know how much to omit.
He is also telling me that his Main Contractor is asking him for my defined cost - for clarity my works is not a CE to him, we are about 10% of his works and were declared to the Client in his bid submission.
I have been resisting because my cost breakdown is very detailed and contains a lot of sensitive information I don’t believe he is entitled to see. He is now suspicious that I am hiding something, and I am suspicious that he will use it as a shopping list.
Contractually do I have to provide him with a Defined Cost breakdown to my Contract Sum? (he already has an Activity Schedule and we have agreed a full schedule of people rates and all Fee percentages)
