One of the main challenges for international contractors operating in today’s complex contractual environment is the increasingly prescriptive nature of conditions of contract that Contractors, Sub-Contractors and on-site teams need to observe. The introduction of the FIDIC 2017 Suite renders this even more obvious, with Contractors required to be a lot more ‘Contract-savvy’ than in the context of the FIDIC 1999 Suite. Strict compliance with the terms and conditions of the Contract and related processes and procedures are required in order to avoid the loss of entitlements, to ensure contractual opportunities are secured and that claims are submitted in a timely manner. How will the requirements and obligations of the FIDIC 2017 Suite play out in the real world for Contractors and their teams? This session has been specifically conceptualised for Contractors looking to gain a much-needed edge and in-depth practical knowledge of efficient strategies for on-site contract and team management, as well as what may be useful to take into consideration when operating in an international environment. Guided by a team of experienced international contract managers and FIDIC experts with hands-on practical experience in contract management, Contractors will be given an insight into key areas of effective on-Site contract and claim management.

Coverage Includes:
Part I – Understanding the Changing Role of the Contractor
Part II – What does an Effective On-Site Contract Management Strategy Looks like
Part III – Regional Pitfalls to Look-Out for and How to Overcome Common Challenges
Part IV – Achievables

A successful claimant is one who gets paid. Claimants very often cannot turn their claims into cash because amongst other things:

  • They cannot establish cause and effect, and/or quantify their delay disruption and acceleration Claims
  •  Failed to keep proper records, and/or They have agreed to an inappropriate dispute resolution forum
  • They contracted with the inappropriate counter party
  • They cannot enforce the DAB Decision or the Arbitration Award 

However, Claimants often prefer to focus on abstract legal rights. Against this background a team of leading Construction experts, will use knowledge gained over decades to demonstrate how to manage and pursue Claims successfully. This will include a practical demonstration of what you need to win your case & get paid.
