First of all: Try to avoid conflict:

It is desirable that the differences that may arise in the development of the contract can be resolved directly between the parties.
In order to avoid or minimize that requests for change or claims arising from contracts become conflicts, InterlatinaGP assists in:

  • Timely attention to contractual provisions related to eventual changes and / or disturbances.
  • Carry out an adequate and precise handling and monitoring of the work schedules.
  • Convenient management of changes and alterations that affect the execution of the contract, preparing and ordering the progress records and consumption of resources.
  • Correctly assess the consequences and/or risks derived.
  • Proper generation of supporting documents.

These actions will allow the contractor to present solid change requests or claims, well documented and immediately after the events occur or are known, when they are still “fresh” and easily verifiable.

Negociation and/or Mediation:

InterlatinaGP can act as mediator or assist in the development of the process and propose to the parties a Report of Recommendations, with the corresponding detail and support.
