Should CECA rates be used for the productive time on site or the time actully whilst on site during working hours
I have to make a lot of assumptions here :
- That you are under option A or B as a standard schedule is only used for the Defined Cost of Equipment under these options and then adjusted by the percentage for adjustment for Equipment.
- Therefore, Defined Cost only comes into play when there is a compensation event.
- The key clause for assessing change in Defined Costs (plus Fee) due to a compensation event is 63.1. Here the change in Defined Cost + Fee has to be due to “the effect of the compensation event”.
So the answer is a typical experts response : it depends ! What was the “effect of the compensation event” ? I.e. if they were standing but you were having to pay, then that is an effect.
