Omar thanks so much for your contribution and for pointing out these couple of points. I have followed up with responses (in blue) on where I do agree and also disagree:
- The consultant’s comment concerning foreign procurement of the Pumps is a Hidden event. This is due to a total amount of 110 days lead-time and 54 days already available for procuring the pumps locally. It’s not immediately noticeably that foreign procurement will involve additional time hence impacting the project altogether. Further negotiations and correspondence will determine if procuring from the foreign vendor will impact the project
- Thanks for pointing out the float time; I totally agree with you that this 20 day float could be used to offset the delay and could also eat up more than the 20 days float making it a hidden event.
