Learn about the pros and cons of utilizing Ghost Schedules.

 

Ghost Schedules are used behind the scenes on construction projects for various purposes. Contractors use them to record their original plan when owners refuse to approve early completion schedules or fail to grant time extensions as well as to manage subcontractors/suppliers to early finish dates. The U.S. Court of Federal Claims has ruled that contractors are "not required to advise the owner of its planned early completion", thus giving rise to an increased use of Ghost Schedules. Owners use Ghost Schedules when contractor schedules or updates are deemed unusable and an accurate as-built schedule is needed to permit independent delay analysis. Since a Ghost Schedule is not the contract schedule there are pros and cons concerning its use. This topic's goal is to show how Ghost Schedules can be used by both parties for better project control, more accurate decision making and faster resolution of claims as well as the associated risks.
