It is an ideal form of subcontract for employing specialist trade contractors.

The SA National Treasury Standard for Infrastructure Procurement and Delivery Management has, with the exception of the NEC3 Framework Contract (a head contract), endorsed the NEC3 family of contracts for use by organs of state in South Africa to serve their infrastructure needs.

The NEC3 family of contracts support a wide range of procurement strategies which can lead to improved project outcomes and in so doing realise value for money.
