AACE Presents… Claims Analysis Nested in Schedule Updates
September 6, 2011
Looking for a logical case on preparing contemporaneous claims analysis and entitlement determination as part of regular schedule updates? Well, look no further.
AACE Presents’ latest installment features author/presenter Christopher W. Carson PSP.
Typical updates consist of information collection, data input, recalculation, and results comparison. If the recalculated completion date exceeds contract requirements, the contractor adjust the schedule to regain the required date. This process is repeated until the required completion is achieved.
If, after the first accurate update, a previous period critical path review is made, the critical path delays are identified, it is possible to provide a reasonable, inexpensive, and timely assessment of the causes for delay. Then, the appropriate parties can be notified, and those parties can be stakeholders in mitigation of delays. Benefits of this procedure are that the contractor does not take on the costs of delay mitigation caused by others, the owner and subcontractors are put on notice for their delays and participate in mitigation decisions.
This webinar was developed from one of over 100 presentations given at the 2006 Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, and is just an example of the types of high quality topics presented each year. Mark your calendar for July 8-12, 2012 to attend next year’s Annual Meeting in at the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel in San Antonio, Texas.
