NEC3 Option A Contract.
Being asked by Client to provide quotations for “Proposed Instructions”
Can someone please clarify if the cost for preparing quotations for “proposed instructions” is part of defined cost. Some of the proposed instructions are taking a lot of time and effort to prepare.
We understand that as per 11.2 (22) defined cost for CE’s excludes the cost of preparing quotations for “compensation events”.
However a “Proposed Instruction” is not a “compensation event”
