Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3)Additional information:

Contract performance will be regularly monitored. Contractors not delivering on contract requirements is a serious matter. It means the public purse is not getting VFM. If satisfactory levels of contract performance are not met they will be given a specified time to improve. If, after the specified time, they still fail to reach satisfactory levels of performance, the matter will be escalated to senior management in CPD 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 (COUP) and the contract may be terminated. The issue of a COUP will result in the contractor being excluded from all procurement competitions being undertaken by COPE on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland Procurement Policy for a period of 12 months from the date of issue of the certificateā€.
