eBook NEC3 FAQs on Defined Cost and Payment from NEC Contract Users (Free Download)
In 2005 when asked to provide a client new to NEC3 with an internal NEC helpdesk, my colleagues asked how long I might be doing the job. Their estimates varied from 12 months to 5 years... “There aren’t that many questions you can ask on the NEC Contract…“
Ten years on you are reading a compilation of the NEC Contract questions and answers from the NEC3 project community and there is no sign that this shows any sign of running out of steam. The questions asked are sometimes funny… but always real world and some are more telling of the difficulties users run into when they haven’t done their homework…
“Who is responsible for an estimating error in the tendered total of the Prices…?”
So why have NEC3 forums on LinkedIn and ReachBack thrived against all expectations. Every week our email system is inundated with new questions and almost as rapidly, their peers answer these questions. Some might also say that this is the easiest book written to date on NEC Contract. This book is a result of their collaborative effort:- “Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.” ~ Chinese Proverb.
