1   Framework and Guidelines for a Model Submarine Cable Contract

This documents developed by a group working within SubOptic provides an insight into a critical but often misjudged and misunderstood part of all that makes up a submarine cable project.

This Construction Contract Framework is not intended to be used as the de-facto finished agreement – however, it will provide a sound introduction to the structure and the purpose of the Contract for the novice, and it will form a baseline for discussions and negotiations helping to deliver clarity and speed to this critical project phase. The Construction Contract Guide will provide the reader with the perspective of both the supplier and the buyer, and understand what collateral activities and dependencies have to be taken into account to ensure success.
