This subcontracting agreement covers:
A subcontracting agreement is an agreement between a main contractor and a person or company (a subcontractor) delegating part of the main contractor's work or obligations. It sets out the subcontracted services, pricing and payment, change control (ie procedure for any changes in the services provided and the liability limit for defaulted or defective services). For more information, read Subcontracting work.
You need a subcontracting agreement when you want to subcontract all or some of your work and you want to ensure that you are protected if the subcontractor fails to perform or performs poorly. This agreement will help to ensure compliance with the terms of the main contract.
If any default in the services or defective services appears, the main contractor remains liable to the customer under the main contract for non-performance by the subcontractor even where the customer consents to the subcontracted performance. In this agreement, the main contractor will need to be indemnified by the subcontractor for failure to perform or poor performance. For more information, read Subcontracting work.
In this agreement, you will be able to make changes to the services such as price and payment, volume and specification of services. You will be able to specify them in the schedules attached to this agreement.
The main contractor remains liable for the performance of the main contract, however, if the subcontractor fails to perform their obligations under this agreement, they will be required to compensate for any losses incurred. The subcontractor's liability is limited if the main contractor or its customer fails to perform its obligations and it causes a delay or prevents the subcontractor from performing their obligations.
For more information, read Limitation of liability clauses.
You can terminate this agreement:
