Project Control - Claims Preparation Management and Negotiation

Although many claims are prepared, presented and defended retrospectively, there is often a contractual obligation to analyse a problem contemporaneously so that a timeous claim or response can be submitted. For instance, the Engineering and Construction Contract requires delaying events and their consequences to be notified and dealt with as they arise.

It is equally important that a client recognises the interfaces between timeous problem analysis and the ability to prosecute or defend adjudication procedures without delay.

DAQS have assisted in a number of claim situations during the course of the project to enable the appropriate documentation and case to be assembled.

A key element to real-time claims management involves the setting up of systems to enable fast access to the facts and DAQS has developed specialist expertise in this area.
