Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

So with concurrent delay, you get time but not money - but what if you need acceleration to stay on schedule?

I did some reading, and basically if you have to accellerate in concurrent delay the contractor gets 50% of the accelleration costs.

John,

still struggle with concurrent delay - or is it pacing or parallel? Did you realise at the time what it was or is it just in a retrospective analysis being done by somebody who was not there? Did it change from period to period? As you say, did you mitigate by acceleration without realising it and now the clever people want to claim some money back?
