A North Dakota Subcontractor Agreement outlines a subcontractor’s requirements and responsibilities when working with a contractor, typically on a construction job.
It details the subcontractor’s tasks, how long they will work for the subcontractor, how much the contractor will pay the subcontractor, and requirements like insurance and transportation.
Subcontractors are any persons in the business of construction, repair, alteration, and improvement of real or personal property through skill, labor, materials, or some combination of those aspects.
They do not have a contract directly with a property owner or client- they are in a relationship with the general contractor the client hired.
Subcontractors work within the scope of the subcontractor agreement and perform only the duties noted in the contract.
For example, a general contractor sometimes wins a job they cannot perform 100% in-house.
For instance, the contractor may need more specialized skills to conduct electrical work safely. In that case, they may look for someone to help with a portion of the project – that person is called a subcontractor.
