We have a client that has deleted Clause 31 from the contract. However, most (if not all) other references have been left in place (including Clause 32 and 60.1 (3) and 11.2 (1).
On this basis, how do you define what an “Accepted Programme” is if the client have no accountability to Accept it?
Can you still utilise Clause 60.1 (3)? Can you simply use the last submitted programme to impact CE’s with a statement around no programme response, therefore assume agreement?
To date, no comments have been issued back to the contractor following programme submissions.
