C9M8 Finalising the Claim

C9M8 Finalising the Claim

Module 8 covers everything that you need to do to finalise your claim and we examine 4 key components:

Executive Summary and Statement of Claim

We are now coming the end of the claim narrative and in this part of Module 8 we discuss two very important parts of the claim narrative – the Executive Summary and the Statement of Claim, including what they should include and how they may be easily compiled.

Substantiation

Substantiation is required within the claim to prove that statements made, points relied on, facts stated, calculations and so on are true. In this part of the module, we discuss the various documents that should be included in the claim submission and how they should be ordered and referenced.

The Appendices

Here we examine how the various appendices should be presented and ordered to ensure that the substantiating documents are organised.

Third Party Review

Finally, before the claim is finalised, we discuss the importance of carrying out a third-party review.

C9M7 Entitlement

C9M7 Entitlement

A demonstration of cause and effect will not automatically carry entitlement to compensation for time and/or payment so, in this module we examine the contractual entitlement and the narrative that has been prepared to demonstrate entitlement within the claim. We also discuss demonstration of compliance with the conditions precedent included in the Contract.

C9M5 Cause & Effect

C9M5 Cause & Effect

In this module we discuss the essential elements of a successful claim and typical types of causation. In order to establish and demonstrate the cause, we also examine the narrative which has was prepared for the case study claim.

We then look at the different effects that may be felt by the Contractor in a claim situation and discuss how to link cause and effect. Finally, we examine the claim narrative which demonstrates the effect on the project and on the Contractor.

C9M4 Compilation & Preliminaries to the Claim

C9M4 Compilation & Preliminaries to the Claim

In Module 4 we move on to the preparation of the claim narrative and in in video 1, we discuss the four key points which must be complied with for an effective claim to be prepared.

We then move on to the preliminaries of the claim. Here, we examine the claim narrative for the case study and discuss the “front end” of the claim document, including the front cover; the contents; definitions; abbreviations and clarifications; and the contract particulars.
