Engineer's decision

Regarding Clause 67.1: if the Contractor is dissatisfied with an Engineer's evaluation of a claim under Clause 53, he may refer the matter at any time (before or after completion) to the Engineer under Clause 67.1 for an "Engineer's Decision". He can do this any time up to his Final Statement and there is no time limit. The Engineer then has 84 days to respond. The Contractor cannot submit a "new'" claim for normal determination under this clause. The claim must first be processed under Clause 53, and only when a Clause 53 determination has been given which the Contractor finds to be unacceptable do we have a "dispute" situation which can be handled under Clause 67.1. - See more at:
