We are using the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) main option A (priced contract with activity schedule). The contract specifically prevents the contractor recovering the cost of preparing quotations for compensation events. What does preparing quotations mean? For example, would time spent obtaining quotations for compensation events from subcontractors be caught?
The words mean what they say, and yes, obtaining quotations from subcontractors is part of preparing a quotation.
