How can the compensation event process be improved to make the process more efficient from not only a client and contractor but also a PM’s perspective?
I don’t necessarily think the process needs to be particularly improved within the contract - but people’s understanding and practical application of it can be improved. Within the BuiltIntelligence NEC3 LinkedIn group we have just posted a “user guide - how to get compensation events implemented” which I think you will find very comprehensive and useful. I also attach a link below in case you are not in the LinkedIn group (which I also copy a link below as well):
In summary the key words are transparency and communication, and keep within the timescales to ensure both Parties understand liability.
