Subcontractor failed to maintain an accepted programme. An event occurred which is an Employers risk.(1 day)
a) Is Contractor entitled to a CE. (Contractor has failed to submit revised programmes throughout the project, there is an Accepted Programme though which dates have all been missed since this was done in the beginning)
b) Can Project Manager tell Contractor to use Total/free float to absorb the impact? And if so, must Contractor submit a revised schedule to show how this one day will be used to recovery the very low productivity/ progress they lost. (PM’s view is they are not even achieving their planned progress, they have missed their key dates, why would they be insistent in wanting a CE? To what end? Even if its just time, their progress achieved is so little PM fails to see how will one day effect the overall project) PM is implementing 25.3.
