The SC is designed for high-risk, complex procurement contracts, where the supplier is designing and manufacturing highly complex goods that are specified in detail in the goods information. The goods are specifically for the purchaser and are to be delivered by a specific date or dates as set out in the contract.

For that reason it is not suitable for relatively straightforward call-off type supplies, where easily identifiable goods can be priced and called off as and when needed, with no need for any further goods information to be provided. Therefore we recommend that you should use the NEC3 Supply Short Contract (SSC) for this type of supply, as it is specifically designed for it.
