NEC3 ECC: Third party claims associated to a compensation event

Under an ECC option C contract, scope has increased through various CEs and there has been third party claims as a direct result from a compensation event. Should there be an increase in forecast quotations to allow for increased liability to the Contractor?

The Contractor should price the full effects of a compensation event. If this includes costs from a third Party which is their risk under the contract and a cost that they will incur then yes they would be entitled to include this within their quotation.

(You may need to expand upon what you mean by “third party claims” for us to fully caveat this answer.)
