Payments terms only state what is to be paid and a project end date - however I can prove that we were still waiting information from the client well after the end date. They also claim they will pau me less because the client changed their requirements. The clause on payments states -
Acceptance Criteria and Processes:i. All of the deliverables submitted as part of this project will be reviewed by First Group and will be approved by the First Group Project Sponsor as per the SoW between Concorde and First Group dated December 2013e.

Work Location: Work will be carried out at either Concorde’s office or the Consultant’s own office
The clause on termination states -
6. Exceptional Conditionsa. Termination Conditions: 5 days written notice by either partyb. Indemnity: Company must ensure adequate indemnity insurance in placec. Liability: Company must ensure adequate liability insurance in placed. Intellectual Property Rights: As dictated by Subcontractor Agreement
They have offered me £6000 a reduction of £4000 but as I have worked for them since January I may have to accept that figure as I am running out of funds. If I accept £6000 will this affect my rights to claim the remaining amount?
I have done less than was listed in the SOW but actually more because of the change in requirements. I did not produce draft reports as I was told they would be done online, I have not been given the option to complete the recommendations as I don't have sight of the reports.
There are no change control provisions in the SOW
