7.3 Contracts with service providers

Contracts are required with service providers for a range of services CARE may require, including maintenance, construction and other services. These contracts are negotiated by the procurement unit.

Note that construction services and engineering contracts require technical review, and have specific clauses unique to this category of service, such as liability insurance requirements and penalties for delays. These contracts require careful review by the legal department and a technical specialist. In the case of any contract questions or requirements, each Lead Member should be requested to review before the contract is finalised and/or signed.
