NEC Early Warnings Webinar

25 JUNE 2015

Early Warnings webinar

Some call the Early Warnings the ‘jewel in the NEC crown’The early warning process is straightforward but very important for the success of NEC contracts in facilitating the ‘sprit of mutual trust and cooperation’. The contract administrator must give the process, and the associated Risk Register, the attention it deserves and develop and use his or her ‘soft skills’ to get the best out of risk reduction meetings.

However, there is a misconception from some clients that early warnings are just a precursor to a compensation event. Is that really the case?

Hear from Richard Patterson, NEC and Procurement Specialist, Mott MacDonald and Rob Gerrard, NEC Users’ Group Secretary:

  • when it is required and appropriate to issue early warnings
  • how to effectively use the Risk Register and what information to include getting the most from risk reduction meetings
  • how the NEC’s Risk Register differs from a ‘project risk register’ that may be being used on the project
  • how Requests for Information (RFIs) and Technical Queries (TQs) relate to early warnings
  • the opportunities behind early warnings
