An adjudication stands or falls on the quality of a number of documents:

  • The payment claim
  • The payment schedule (if any)
  • The adjudication application
  • The adjudication response (if any)
  • Further submissions, solicited or unsolicited (if any)
  • The Adjudicator’s Determination.

The presenter will discuss the essential elements of each document, and problems encountered with actual cases. If a document is found to be non-compliant after the adjudicator has accepted the appointment, what happens? Is the adjudicator entitled to be paid for work done? The NSW case Alucity Architectural Product Supply v Australian Solutions Centre [2016] NSWSC 608 will be considered.

Join the Victorian Chapter Adjudication SIG committee for this in-depth discussion and simultaneously earn valuable CPD points.
