LAA Contingency Arrangements Survey

We have had a few calls regarding this survey:

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/survey-seeks-views-on-contingency-arrangements

It certainly seems more about information gathering than “seeking views” hence the unease it has caused.

The 2 main questions have been:

Is it mandatory?

There is nothing to suggest so though we do advise completion.

Can this lead to contract action or sanctions?

We think not under the present contingency arrangements and also given 2017/8 Contract Specification Standard Term 30.6 (c) – general exemption due to epidemic.

Also the tone, though not the detail, of David Thomas’ letter to suppliers supports that view.

It is a bit fiddly but it “shouldn’t take long to complete” – they want responses by next Monday, 11th January.

Do ring if you want to talk it through.
