Example of how to lodge claim

A claim is a commercial demand in regard to money, schedules, technical or contractual content raised by one party of a contract against another because of variances or difficulties in connection with the fulfilment of the contract.

Claims can be directed from CONTRACTOR against the Employer, Supplier or Commercial Partner – or vice versa. In some cases, claims can be levied by an outside party against an CONTRACTOR company.

In extreme cases, an unresolved claim can lead to termination of the contract.

A claim brought by CONTRACTOR must not be viewed as an unmerited attack on the Employer but rather as a right to compensation for increased costs, extension of time or other disadvantages incurred by CONTRACTOR which were not within scope at the time of negotiation of the order.

A claim is generated by a failing or breach of obligation of a party’ or by the occurrence of an event for which the parties have pre-agreed that one party should bear the risk.

Having identified a breach or failing, established the cause and effect, the claim must then be substantiated and supported by documentation and the quantum, both in terms of time and cost
