Issues Concern: Single Largest Completed Contract

 

Details

Whether a contract covering three (3) phases of a project, with only one (1) phase having been completed, can be considered as Single Largest Completed Contract (SLCC)

 

[I]f all the phases of the project are covered by a single contract, it is necessary that all these phases be completed before that single contract can be considered as completed too. Thus, if only one phase has been accomplished, the contract itself cannot be considered as completed until all the remaining phases are also completed. Consequently, this contract shall be regarded as an on-going contract which cannot meet the requirements of a SLCC.

 

Based on the foregoing, it is our considered view that the submission of a contract covering three (3) phases of a project, with only one (1) phase having been completed, cannot be considered as sufficient compliance with the SLCC requirement for failure to pass the test of completeness of contract.
