The talk will discuss the obligations of the Engineer when responding to and providing formal determinations of claims and how to comply this in a professional and efficient manner to avoid disputes.

Every claim submitted by a contractor requires a response or determination from the Engineer but many costly and time-consuming disputes are caused as a result of incorrect or inadequately presented responses.
The outcome of a response or determination should be to set out the findings of the Engineer in such a way that it will satisfy both the Employer and the Contractor so matters may be amicably agreed.
