This articles explains how to raise contract notices and is based on the NEC3 ECC. The notice types that can be notified varies from contract to contract based on the role under the contract, main options, secondary options, z clauses.
How to draft a General Notification
It is important that it is clear what is being notified and for what reason. There are several obligations throughout the contract and they are all listed for you within this form.
In an NEC3 ECC contract the drop-down list of contract notice types will vary for the Project Manager, Supervisor and Contractor as they can notify slightly different events. These drop-down lists can also be updated by admins to reflect any Z clauses or secondary options used.
Each Notification requires a subject, and then to choose the contractual reason for the Notification from the drop-down list. The reason for the Notification has to be within that list. However, there is a catch-all “other general notification” at the bottom of the list for either Party wanting to notify something that is not on the list e.g. Project Manager wants to share a safety bulletin for information with the Contractor. They then go on to write the details as to what is being notified.
Fill out all the fields and click the "Create Notification Draft" button at the footer of the form which will take you the draft notice page.
Please note that any 'Notification' created in this draft page will be saved in draft mode for further changes. Only communicated 'Notification' will be sent to Contractor on the subsequent page, by clicking the green action button.
If this green communicate action button is missing, it is because you only have permission to draft the notice and don't have permission to communicate it. Contact your line manager to see if you should have this permission.
How to Print a Notice
Once your notice has been communicated no changes can be made to it. The Notification will automatically be added to the relevant Register and you will be able to print by selecting the Print button.
Finding your way around the relevant Register (new)
From a notice you can navigate back to the relevant Register by clicking the "Back to Register" button or by clicking the breadcrumb navigation.
