English term or phrase: No Excuse Incentive
The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) submits this work plan for review and approval as a No Excuse Incentive (NEI) in phases to a total amount of $800,000 for this project under the provisions of Special Experimental Project No. 14 (SEP-14) for the use of innovative contracting practices. ITD and their GARVEE Transportation Program Manager, Connecting Idaho Partners (CIP) have selected the NEI technique as potentially the most effective method to accelerate construction of this project and maximize the amount of work done before the winter shutdown.

no excuse incentive


まず『奨励策』でなく『奨励金』であるのは、リンクサイトのIDAHO TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENTの文章を見るとこうあるからです。
the Contractor elects to be paid the "No Excuse Incentive" which the Contractor is eligible to be paid based on the actual acceptance date,(以下省略)

また3つのフェーズのそれぞれを規定し、そのあとに、For purposes of calculation and the determination of entitlement to the "No Excuse Incentive" stated above, the "No Excuse Incentive" completion date will not be adjusted for any reason, cause or circumstance whatsoever, regardless of fault. とありますから、建築工事にはさまざまな遅延要素があるが、それを全部クリアし、なにがなんでも初めに目標として出した工事完成日を達成しなさいということだとわかります。要するに、そういうことを弁解のタネにして工事完成を遅らせてはだめだ、ということであり、そのむねを極力奨励するためのお金だとわかります。
Should the Contractor fail to actually complete a segment and obtain acceptance of that segment, or should the Contractor, having done so, fail to timely request the "No Excuses Incentive" for any reason, and including but not limited to the Contractor choosing not to fully waive, release and acknowledge satisfaction, for that segment, as set forth in 2) above, the Contractor shall have no right to any payment whatsoever under this provision and the normal Contract terms shall apply.
