We have been asked to draw up a Framework Contract for a Client who has expressed a desire to use the Engineering and Construction Short Contract for Package Orders. The Framework is intended to run for a minimum of two years with a potential for up to two further one year extensions so up to four years overall.
The Framework Contract would be to provide drainage surveys and minor repairs.
The ECSC does not appear to be an appropriate form of Contract to use in this situation and I wondered if anyone has any experience in preparing/using an NEC Framework Contract which adopts the ECSC.
The lack of a Method of Measurement, Option X1: Price Adjustment for Inflation, etc. in the ECSC make me think we should really be using the ECC Option B or E instead.
