Rule 25:

How the Rules should be applied to subcontracting arrangements.

  1. An agency should require prime contractors to meet certain standards in its subcontracting. The standards should be consistent with the Principles and the government procurement Charter, the Supplier Code of Conduct, the priority outcomes set out in Rules 16 to 20 and other guidance.

Procurement advice

Subcontracting can be a significant part of delivering a procurement contract. It is important that subcontractors have good standards, particularly in employment, health and safety, and supporting training and skills development. Agencies should seek to engage with prime contractors who have good processes for managing their subcontractors, and who engage with subcontractors that demonstrate good practice.
