On behalf of an owner, performed an assessment of a Change Order Request for Labor Productivity Impacts and Extended General Conditions Cost. The assessment revealed that the contractor did not follow the MCAA instructions on the use of MCAA’s Labor Factors found in MCAA Management Methods Manual Bulletin No. PD2 (Revised 2011). The assessment also identified that the claim for General Conditions Cost was not supported by any schedule analysis and was a total cost claim even though there were numerous executed change orders, which included a 14 percent markup for supervision, quality control, and safety.
