Although the Client is procuring the UPS supplies, the successful bidder will be expected to enter into a domestic sub-contract with the successful Principal Contractor.
This sub-contract will be agreed between the successful Principal Contractor and the successful specialist sub-contractor based on all respects upon this tender for the design, manufacture, supply, delivery to site, off-loading, moving to place of work, protecting, assembly, installation, testing and commissioning of the UPS supplies and on the terms of the standard form of domestic subcontractor current at the time of tender, as necessary to conform with the amended main contract.
