NEC3 ECC: When is it reasonable to omit a BQ item when you are pricing change from first principles?

The project manager believes that we, the contractor, must price the omission from first principles instead of omitting the BQ item. The contract is NEC3 Option B.

The Project Manager is right as you only use BoQ rates for assessing compensation events by agreement - see option B clause 63.13, last sentence and he / she seems not to be agreeing to it !

So the default is core clause 63.1, which includes for omissions.
