For inclusion within Defined Cost with monthly interim applications , can the Project Manager only pay for people for the time that they are in the Working Areas? I.e. use an agreed hourly cost of employment only against time within the Working Areas (invariably checked by Contractor’s signing in records and the like)
It is thought that as it is “…incurred in order to Provide the Works” and
- “people who are directly employed by the Contractor and whose normal place of working is within the Working areas” and
13(a) Payments made in relation to people for travel
that the Project Manager has to include in their definition of Defined Cost the time spent on the job by a directly employed person as well as their time and cost of travel to that place… Is this correct?
Before all this, surely the Project Manager would have to argue why it was Disallowed under 11.2 (25)?
