Doesn't sound right. Again, I might be geezing, but when I was a COR the contractor had to produce a report of activity/cost/schedule every month. Contracting got one, I got one, user got one. The user also stayed in close touch with me. So did the contractor. If anything came up the comms channels were well-defined and well-used. And in my case, several of us from my office went to the user for a one-day pow-wow, from which everyone came out happy.
