Under this Enabling Arrangement, the contract delivery schedule is agreed on each Warrant as it is issued. To date over 100,000 items have now been delivered under the cut and sew contract, including combat clothing items, which were received in advance of the agreed delivery date.
Penalties are not enforceable under English Law. The prime contractor has the incentive to perform properly under this contract, as the full five-year duration is subject to continued satisfactory performance. The company is required to make alternative arrangements if there is a risk of delivery failure. However, should they still fail to deliver on time, remedies under the contract include the right to claim damages commensurate with any consequent loss suffered by the Department.
