PMCOS Annual Conference

37th Annual Construction and Public Contracts Law Seminar

May 6 – 9, 2018
Vancouver, British Columbia

This year’s third annual Project Management College of Scheduling conference is themed Scheduling Today and Tomorrow. Discover the current state of the scheduling profession and help move it into the future while networking with schedule professionals from around the globe including many of the top practitioners and experts in the field.

CPMI’s Robert D’Onofrio is speaking on a panel with other experts from Navigant, PMA, and Delta Consulting to discuss assessment of liquidated damages in schedule delay projects. The session will address concurrent delays, offsetting delays, and discuss industry standard for schedule delay analysis ANSI/ASCE/CI 67-17 guideline 4.6 using example situations as to when it may or may not apply.

CPMI’s William Griffin will speak about analyzing delay with inaccurate schedules. When accurate contemporaneous schedules exist, the courts prefer that delay analyses are based on those schedules. However, when schedules are inaccurate, the question becomes whether the schedules should be used as-is, modified/supplemented, or abandoned. Regardless of choice, the use or abandonment of inaccurate schedules will most likely result in criticisms of a delay analyst’s methodology and credibility. This presentation will show various examples of how to make use of inaccurate schedules and how to respond to the inevitable criticisms that will be encountered.
