Section 13: Effect of a determination

The adjudicator’s determination is binding on the parties, until the time of a court judgement or arbitration award is made concerning the matter arising under the contract. If neither party initiates court or arbitration proceedings the determination will remain binding.

If the determination relates to a progress payment then the payment due is on account.

Generally, the determination will require the party who owes money to make the payment within five business days, or if the due date is in the contract, and that date has not been reached, the determination will require payment by that date.
