Remarks – Recommended Use of SACC Item

Use the following clause in contracts including general conditions 2010A, 2010B, 2010C and 2029 when specific individuals are identified in the contract will perform the work.

The clause is not to be used with general conditions 2030, 2035 and 2040 as these general conditions already include the provision.

Legal text for SACC item

  1. If specific individuals are identified in the Contract to perform the Work, the Contractor must provide the services of those individuals unless the Contractor is unable to do so for reasons beyond its control.
  2. If the Contractor is unable to provide the services of any specific individual identified in the Contract, it must provide a replacement with similar qualifications and experience. The replacement must meet the criteria used in the selection of the Contractor and be acceptable to Canada. The Contractor must, as soon as possible, give notice to the Contracting Authority of the reason for replacing the individual and provide:
    1. the name, qualifications and experience of the proposed replacement; and
    2. proof that the proposed replacement has the required security clearance granted by Canada, if applicable.
  3. The Contractor must not, in any event, allow performance of the Work by unauthorized replacement persons. The Contracting Authority may order that a replacement stop performing the Work. In such a case, the Contractor must immediately comply with the order and secure a further replacement in accordance with subsection 2. The fact that the Contracting Authority does not order that a replacement stop performing the Work does not relieve the Contractor from its responsibility to meet the requirements of the Contract.
