That depends on the contract they have signed. All of the specs and associated contract documents drawn up in my organisation cover both fieldwork and post-ex, so that from the outset the developer is tied-in contractually to paying for the post-ex, and keeping it with the original contractor.

Maybe so - but you don't always get a satisfactory result from keeping the work with the original contractor either.
To my mind, the main advantage of keeping the post-ex in the same unit that did the fieldwork is that you retain the knowledge and understanding of the site held in the head of the person who was in charge on site. If they have moved employer, or are sent out on site again while someone else does the digging, where's the advantage? That is why our specs and contract documents try to tie the contractor down to using the original excavator as the main author of the report.
