Regarding an NEC3 2013 PSC Contract.
Its the Start of a Contract.
- The Employer has not used in CDpt1 the statement “The completion date for the whole of the services is…”
- The Employer has used Option X5 which indicates Sectional Completion for 4 x sections of works.
- The Employer has included in CD Part 2 the optional statement “The programme identified in the Contract Data is…” - A programme has been supplied with the consultants tender which has not yet been accepted (under review).
- The Employer has not included in CDpt 2 the statement “The completion date for the whole of the services is…”
The Consultant is advising the Employer that they are concerned there is no Completion Date in CDpt 1 and is advising the Employer that the Employer should be issuing a variation of the contract to include the statement regarding a completion date into CD pt 1 to enable the proper management of the Contract.
Is the Consultant right?
