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.

Unless you have something better to do with your resources, this is a great opportunity to make money.

This is considered as a variation order, even if the project is complete, you still have the Defect Notification Period. During this time, the employer can ask you for more work and this is invoiced in the final invoice.

The best course of action is to submit you actual costs and ask for the profit and overhead. The Engineer will not object in this case.

With kind regards,

Hi Balachandran

Are you saying that you are being asked to do extra work under a contract that has been completed?

If so the work is not an extra under the original contract but is a new and seperate agreement.

You do not have to do it unless you agree costs and time in a new negotiation.

Best regards
