We are a subcontractor on an NEC 3 amended option A subcontract. We omitted metal decking from our quotation and the contract docs also state it is omitted. We’ve since received an instruction to price the decking to which we have quoted and priced. We’ve received no acceptance. We’ve made commercial decisions in the past to do trimmer steels and other work that gets added in via drawing revisions “on account” i.e do it and get paid later, but this one I feel is different and the value is sufficiently high enough to not proceed until an acceptance is issued.
- Is there a deemed acceptance of our quote?
- Is a PMI technically needed as the vehicle to convey an acceptance?
- Are we right to wait for an acceptance?
