Adjudication is a dispute resolution procedure, (refer to clause 36 of the 2021 Model Conditions). If both parties are in a dispute, and one party to the dispute is a CPA member, then an adjudicator who is familiar with the construction industry can interpret the disputed issue and reach a decision.
This is an entirely confidential process and may be quicker and cheaper than resolving the matter through the courts.
