The Project Manager does notify this as a compensation event and instructs the Contractor to submit a quotation. The Contractor informs the Project Manager, 2 weeks after being instructed to submit a quotation for the compensation event, that it is impossible to meet the 3-week deadline.
The quotation is eventually submitted within the original 3 week period.
- How should the Project Manager respond?
2.d. The Project Manager fails to reply within 2 weeks and the Contractor notifies the Project Manager that the quotation is consequently deemed to be accepted. Is this correct?
