We are dealing with FIDIC 1992 4TH Edition. I would like to ask about advance recovery. Advance recovery has to be done for work done and material on site as per contract value as well as variations added to the contract .The project has started unfortunately the main works did not start so the contractor is doing variation works only. We are recovering advance recovery from the work done along with variations in the payment certificate. The contractor is saying that he did not get advance for variations so the recovery should not be done on variations.
Answer Dear Srinadh
Amortisation of Advance has to be on workdone which include Main Works+ Variations+Material.
The reason being cited by the Contractor is not contractual unless such intention has been noted in Particular Conditions.
