What is a Subcontractor?
Clause 11.1(17) defines a Subcontractor as a person or organisation who has a contract with the Contractor to: supply Plant and Materials which the person or organisation has wholly or partly designed for the works; provide a service necessary to Provide the works; or construct or install part of the works. A ‘labour-only’ subcontractor is not a Subcontractor under this definition, while a designer who provides the service of designing parts of the works on behalf for the Contractor is a Subcontractor.
A subcontractor is a person or an organisation that has a contract with the Contractor to construct or install part of the works, provide a service necessary to provide the Works or supply Plants and Materials which the person or organisation has wholly or partly designed specifically for the works. The Contractor may not appoint a Subcontractor until it has been accepted by the Project Manager. Doing so may result in termination of the contract.
Equally the Project Manager has to agree the proposed conditions of subcontract before the Contractor is allowed to appoint the Subcontractor.
Finally for options C, D, E and F, the Contractor has to submit the Contract Data for the subcontract to the Project Manager for acceptance.
