NEC3 ECC: Does the subcontractor fee percentage cover the Contractors project management of that subcontract on an Option E contract?

On an ECC Option E (reimbursable) contract, does the percentage uplift cover the cost of the Contractor project managing the sub-contract, or can this be claimed for separately?

The answer is they can be claimed for seperately, providing the People costs of the management are incurred within the Working Areas as this is where they are covered in the full Schedule of Cost Components.

It is the same answer for options C & D but, under option F, all the management Contractor’s own costs are deemed to be included in the Fee unless they are specifically identified as an item by the Contractor in Contract Data Part 2.
