The reason for this is that we have contract on the day before we go overseas for two weeks. If it takes as long as this, I think we will be loosing our start date.
It amazes me that they are so unorganised, I hope this doesn't continue throughout the build.
How long was the process for other people?
Our tender was ready on the day of our appointment. They made our changes on the spot which meant a bit of waiting around but we signed on the day.
