This session will examine supply chain risks and how practitioners can assist their clients to minimise their risks of exposure to a contractor’s insolvency and voidable preference claims, including:

  • Doing the financial due diligence on contracting partners
  • What needs to be in your company’s procurement policies and procedures?
  • Tender conditions and standard form contracts reviews
  • Monitoring ongoing financial health of contracting parties – what red flags should you be looking for?
  • What safeguards can be put into the contract? A discussion of:
  • Default and termination rights
  • Step in rights
  • Sub-contractors and supply chain monitoring and risk management
  • What are the “ipso facto” provisions and are there any exceptions to them?
  • Benefits of being a secured creditor – PPSA, retention of title and other options
