Time & Programming Under NEC4 Contract
NEC suite of contracts have developed best practice processes and procedures for Time management. The programme of works is a central document to the Time clause under NEC contracts, which holds specific requirements for what is expected from the Accepted Programme.
The significance of the Accepted Programme under NEC contracts emanates not only from being the central Time management tool, but also from how the contract contemplates its use in the wider administration of the contract: including the Main Options, Compensation Events, the Contract Data and Access Dates etc...
CFPM Solutions collaborated with CMC Asia Pacific – provider of NEC training and advice in Australia, to deliver dedicated Time management and Programming service for Clients across Australia.
At CFPM Solutions we appreciate that despite the fact that the contract endeavored to adopt best practice in relation to Time management, delays may still eventuate. Depends on where the progress is from the claimed delays, our service covers the project's commercial interest throughout the entire project as well as post completion to ensure the Early Warning Register and Compensation Events are handled as required by the contract.
NEC standard form contract is well known for its balanced approach to the contracting parties' rights and obligations, where the parties are required to act in a spirit of mutual trust and co-operation.
