Section six. Complementary information

six.3) Additional information

VI.3) Additional information 2. Contract Monitoring. The successful contractor’s performance on the contract will be regularly monitored.. Contractors not delivering. on contract requirements is a serious matter. It means the public purse is not getting what it is paying for.

If, after the specified. time, they still fail to reach. satisfactory levels of contract performance, the matter will be escalated to senior management in DfI 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 Certificate of Unsatisfactory Performance and the. contract may be terminated.. The issue of a Certificate of Unsatisfactory Performance will result in the contractor being excluded from all. procurement competition. being undertaken by Centres of Procurement Expertise on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland. Procurement Policy for a. period of twelve months from the date of issue of the certificate
