Dear Khan, Rizwana,
So what ones do not use Appendix A to Annex 23.
What rates are used to charge if there's no price list to check. How does this work?
Yours sincerely,

The situation with regard to the Authority's contracts is as follows:
Highways England have two main maintenance contract models in use:
1. the original Asset Support Contract (ASC), which is in the process of being phased out and replaced with
2. the Asset Delivery model (AD).
In the former contract model, a schedule of rates is included.
This should be used as the basis for the calculation of costs for claims above and below the £10,000 threshold. As we have long explained, these 'base rates', DCP Rates or 'defied costs' are to be common to all claims in ASC Areas. But they are not.
Below threshold claims are presented to drivers, fleets, hauliers and insurers but they are compiled using a much higher set of rates. In Area 9, Kier Highways have not complied with the contract since day-one, 07/2014 as a cost of £millions to those unfortunate to receive one of their state-supported demands.
