Subcontractor Policy

DIT Subcontractor Policy


The Department policy is that any company that has won a contract with the department should not unfairly disadvantage its workers, subcontractors or suppliers by withholding or delaying payment due and payable to them.

All major works contracts let by The Department include provisions designed to ensure that workers, subcontractors and suppliers receive the payment which is due. There is also a requirement that the terms and conditions of subcontracts are consistent with those in the head contract.

If a subcontractor or supplier believes that they have not received a payment properly due to them when working on a The Department contract, they should immediately contact the The Department representative on site. The matter will be investigated and, if appropriate, action will be taken in accordance with the General Conditions of Contract.
