Q : For claims in terms 8.4 What is a working day?


Dear Colin

Thanks for your question.

As per my understanding based on the details provided by you, Any day other than Sundays and designated public holidays are designated as Working Day.

You may also refer your Approved Programme and see how the days are set to achieve Timely Completion.
