I’m drafting a subcontract for a supply and install. The item is on a long manufacturing lead time but the subcontractor cannot/ won’t confirm a manufacturing slot until the order is placed, the added complication is that they’re outsourcing the manufacture so it could be significantly less than they’ve advised. If I list the Completion Date as the worst case scenario lead time + installation period, that has the potential to be far later than need be.
Is there another way I could approach the Completion date in this instance? I’d appreciate anyone’s thoughts. Thanks
