If the Project Manager is aware something is a compensation event then they should notify that fact to the Contractor. Of course, this could be for a “negative” compensation event where they may be expecting a saving to say an instruction to omit works. It is in the Project Manager's interest to notify this and get it into the system otherwise it could be raised by Contractor several weeks or months later (and they are not time-barred on ones the Project Manager is obliged to notify – numbers 1/4/7/8/10/15/18 in clause 60.1)
