Back To Back Supply Agreement

In addition, in the case of long and detailed basic contractual specifications (often in the form of employer requirements), it can be a very complex and, indeed, controversial task to separate the obligations that are relevant for each subcontract. The main concern of subcontractors is that they accidentally take the risk of inappropriate questions given the scale and scale of their subcontracting. Back-to-back contracts are now common, especially for large construction projects. The main contractor shall endeavour to pass on its debts and liabilities to the project owner through its subcontractors. Even for the smallest construction project, some of the construction work is outsourced. However, a prime contractor usually cannot do the work alone – they can entrust the aid to several subcontractors.
