now client has forwarded the final bill of contractor and istructed consultant to check and sign the bill. let me know that
1. can consultant sign the works done in their absence.
2. without approval of vo2 and vo3 can consultant varify the quantities and amount considered in vo.
pl.answer at your earliest.
1. If the Contract is completed between Client and Consultant, Consultant do not have right to sign any document after the contract completion day.
2. Similiar to above first consultant do not have right to review the documents. If any amendment issued for the consultant for extension period than they can review the quantities prior to approval.
