CEDR publishes second edition of Dispute Resolution Procedure for PFI and Long Term Contracts
CEDR has published the second edition of its Dispute Resolution Procedure for PFI and Long Term Contracts (the 'DRP'). In addition to some format and minor drafting changes the DRP is now accompanied by guidance notes.
The revised DRP and new notes were drafted in consultation with a review group comprising representatives from the Association of Council Secretaries and Solicitors, Berwin Leighton Paisner, the Construction Confederation, Eversheds, Partnerships UK, SOLACE Enterprises, 4ps and Giles Dixon, solicitor and principal author of the first edition.
The DRP and guidance notes precede the publication of CEDR's ADR Guide for Local Authorities in PPPs to be launched at the Association of Council Secretaries and Solicitors' conference in October 2004.
