14/10/2011

Innovative Contract Change Management (CCM) SaaS service, which supports the New Engineering Contract (NEC) form of contract, is selected for a further Lincolnshire project with May Gurney. This follows the use of CCM on the £62m A1073 Spalding to Eye Improvement scheme between Peterborough and Spalding, and the A16/A52 Widening at Boston.

Lee Rowley, Senior Project Leader for the A1073 scheme, said, “CCM has proved to be avery valuable tool for the scheme, with all parties able to see at a glance the current situationwith regards to changes to the contract. With nearly 1200 Early Warnings, 1000 ProjectManager’s Instructions and 1000 Compensation Events the software has greatly assisted in the management of the process.”

The CCM Software as a Service (SaaS), provided by MPS, is specifically designed to manage the contract change processes set out in the NEC form of contract, versions 2 and 3. CCM is currently used by an extensive range of clients around the UK, and in New Zealand, on civils,power and building projects.
