Can someone advise on what as a minimum constitutes the formation of a contract (Package Order) under an NEC3 Framework. My understanding is that if the Employer issues a Work Package; the Supplier quotes and the Employer subsequently issues the Package Order, the contract is formed. (CDP1 & CDP2 completed in full). Is this correct?
As a supplementary question, in relation to the Limitation Act, if the Framework Contract is signed as a deed, how does this relate to a Package Order formed through the quotation procedure and selection procedure set out within the Framework?
