One of the main stumbling blocks in dealing with disputes on projects is the time that it takes to get issues resolved. The risk of delayed resolution of disputes is very real and very expensive. It is therefore important to have a system in place for dealing effectively and quickly with any disputes or disagreements. OnTrack PM is that single truth for the project that will provide the transparency and single system of record that all stakeholders can agree to.
In the event that the dispute cannot be resolved quickly, the project should not be permitted to stop. This is a requirement of standard contracts. The parties must agree to disagree, let the work continue as directed by the consultant and resolve the dispute at the completion of the project. This makes it essential that accurate records are kept by all parties and that the contractual requirements for dates of notices etc. are met. Again with OnTrack being the single system of record…the project truth is known.
