VI.3)Additional information:

Contractors not delivering on contract requirements is a serious matter. It means the public purse is not getting what it is paying for. If a Contractor fails to reach satisfactory levels of contract performance they will be given a specified time to improve. If, after the specified time, they still fail to reach satisfactory levels of contract performance, the matter will be escalated to senior management in Central Procurement Directorate for further action. If this occurs and their performance still does not improve to satisfactory levels within the specified period, it may be regarded as an act of grave professional misconduct and they may be issued with a Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance and this Contract may be terminated. The issue of a Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance may result in the Contractor being excluded from all procurement competitions being undertaken by Centres of Procurement Expertise on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland Procurement Policy for a period of 3 years from the date of issue of the Notice. A central Register of suppliers in. receipt of current Notices and Terminations will be maintained by CPD, and will be publicly available on its website. This Register will cover all procurements by bodies subject to Northern Ireland Public Procurement Policy.
