Subcontracting: a guide

Clinks has worked with Russell-Cooke Solicitors to produce 'Subcontracting: A Guide to the Legal Implications of the ISPA'.  

The Guide can be downloaded as a complete document, or by individual module, which cover various issues relating to subcontracting. There is also a short video introduction to each module which covers the key points.

The Industry Standard Partnering Agreement (ISPA) is the new standard contract that most organisations will be required to use when subcontracting under the TR programme. The Guide will help voluntary sector organisations get to grips with the implications of taking on this kind of contract and how to deal with contract negotiations.
