Before continuing a discussion about subcontractors, it is important that you, the contractor, refer to your framework contract (the agreement you have with a customer) to see if the framework contract even allows the use of subcontractors. Sometimes the agreement may prohibit the use altogether, while in other cases the prior consent of the customer is required before subcontractors can be used. Does your subcontractor have their own insurance that can cover you? Subcontracting is the practice of delegating part of the obligations and tasks of a contract to another known subcontractor, which can be common in areas or areas where it is necessary to work on complex projects, such as. B construction and information technology. Subcontractors are the subcontractor to whom the main agency or lead is a subcontractor. . . .
