Welcome to Insight from Hindsight
Welcome to Issue 6 of Insight from Hindsight, the quarterly e-journal of the Navigant Construction Forum™ focusing on construction and dispute related issues in the global construction community. This issue includes five articles on construction advisory and disputes topics impacting today’s construction market. The articles address various topics including how RFIs are used, abused, and can be controlled; why suspensions and debarment's are rising on federal contracts and how contractors can avoid the “corporate death penalty;" a discussion of the admissibility of nonbinding written dispute resolution board recommendations in subsequent litigation; an interview centered on how unconventional oil and gas is supercharging the U.S. economy; and an article providing insight on the perceptions of mediators and how the conduct of the mediation process may impact these perceptions.
