Contract close-out, Other Management

Contract  close-out:  

Contract  close-out  begins  with  checking  for physical completion, i.e., whether all services have been performed and products delivered. Closeout of a contract is completed when all administrative actions have been completed, all disputes settled, and final  payment  has  been  made.  Contract  close-out  comprises  both "physical close-out? and "financial close-out?. Physical close-out is achieved   when   contractor   has   completed all his physical work obligations as per the contract including rectification of  all defects/deficiencies jointly identified by both parties.

Financial close-out is achieved when all amounts payable to and recoverable from the contractor are reconciled and the final payment is made to the contractor.

The amounts will cover many aspects like reconciliation of materials issued to/returned by contractor, recoveries for back charges, Liquidated Damages (LD) and so on. In summary, completion of all contractual obligations needs to be agreed by both parties after which the contractor submits the following certificates:

  •   Final discharge certificate.
  •   No lien certificate or an affidavit for lien.

In case dispute remains, the dispute is referred to arbitration in accordance with the contract provision and contract close-out is made on the basis of the arbitrator's award.
