Content in Modul 3: Evaluation of changes

Module 2 showed, how to secure an entitlement. The next question is, how to evaluate a change order or a claim? How to determine the applicable extension of time? This module explains the procedures for evaluating costs, price and the adjustment of time for planned and unplanned changes. Passing the tests in this module is a prerequisite for the Master Contract Manager.

The total duration for the lessons of this Module is about5 hours


Basis of claims: Causality & Fault

The goal is usually that a contract is fulfilled by fulfilling the promised mutual obligations. The execution of a contract does not always go as planned, so that additional expenses arise that were not planned. The pursuit of the fulfillment of the contract is therefore only one side of the coin, because the question arises as to how the additional effort is assessed and the resulting disadvantage enforced against the other party? This lesson begins by explaining some of the principles of legislation and explaining various terms used in this context. 


Primary, secondary & tertiary entitlement

The basic claim from a contract concerns the performance against payment. But what happens in the event of a disruption that has an impact on the execution of the contract? Both contracts and laws regulate who can make a claim in the event of disruptions. This lesson deals with the Basis for claims from the different areas. Only those who know the possible basis for claims can also claim additional work. In this lesson, basic claim scenarios are presented that are decisive for the type of compensation or compensation.


Evaluation of damages & compensation

In the previous lesson, we looked at claim bases and how to file a claim. It makes sense to make an assessment of the relationship to the risk with the expected effort to provide evidence. Then it is decided which investment in the "evidence" makes sense. The evidence to be secured depends on the basis of the claim, the contract and the specific disruption. In this lesson the different approaches are dealt with in order to lead an efficient and resource-saving evidence procedure.


Assessment of overhead in a claim

Not all costs are the same. Depending on the type of claim, different cost elements of overhead or overhead costs are accepted. This lesson explains how to evaluate and present the corresponding cost components.


Payment delay and Interest

The timely and full payment of the invoices is an important tool to keep a company going. This lesson looks at late payment damage, costs, cash flow, and compensation.


Evaluating loss of productivity

Assessing default damage and having it replaced is no trivial task. In addition to the evidence, the assignment to the correct claim basis also plays a decisive role. In addition to the project extension, efficiency losses play the greatest role in damage caused by delay. The entitlement is based on the additional time that must be spent. This lesson shows the different methods of assessing a loss of productivity.


Evaluating an Extension of Time

Assessing default damage and having it replaced is no trivial task. The principle is: "Agree the time and the money will follow." The larger a project, the more likely it is that a deadline will be delayed. The entitlement is based on the time extension for which additional services are provided on the project. However, the prerequisite is that one is able to prove that the other party is responsible for this delay. Who is then responsible for which part of the delay is usually only determined at the end of the project on the basis of the files. This lesson shows the analyzes and evaluations of the various events and documents in order to evaluate your own right to an extension of the deadline.


Evaluating Cost for an Extension of Time

In a first step, the right to a project extension is determined. This then forms the basis for determining the additional costs associated with the extension. This lesson deals with the calculation of additional work in connection with a project extension that was caused by the customer.


Liquidated damages

Assessing default damage and having it replaced is no trivial task. In order to reduce the effort, many customers demand a flat-rate default penalty. This lesson explains the differences between flat-rate damages and a flat-rate contractual penalty.


Evaluation of planned changes (Change orders)

The calculation of a planned change basically corresponds to the calculation of a new order. A price consisting of costs and profit is regularly offered. However, there are a few points to consider, especially when it comes to a reduction.
