|Abstract: ||Claims in international civil engineering projects sometimes will have impact on
implementing the contract successfully., in order to observe and evaluate the
contract claim situation in Ethiopia, and give guideline to all the contractual roles
to settle the claims comfortably, this paper devote the research and literate
review to find the key problems in contract claim management and give
With this focused objective, this paper presents a research analysis based on
randomly selected data from international construction organization that work in
Ethiopia. The contract claim case studies analyzed by sampling survey scientific
research method that follows a research strategy of specific to general. In the
beginning, the paper analyzes the elements of contract claim administration, and
then provides the general overview of the contract claim. Finally, it numerates
the claim causes usage through cases studies selected in Ethiopia under
different contract condition of Mo WUD, PPA and FIDIC. In addition to these
discussions, analysis of other secondary data and recommendations forwarded
to explain how claims should handle properly.
During the thesis research period, there were 15 simple random selected
projects have been studied as a case studies.
From studied projects, the time
extension in average, exceed 117.7% of its original contract completion time and
the cost compensation increase 34.8% comparing to its initial contract value.
Thus, the main causes of the majority contract claim problem lies on the failure
in contract claim management and on unforeseen circumstance like variation,
adverse climate, right of way problems, etc.
