DEFENCE Minister Manohar Parrikar has told The Indian Express that just a few days ago, he has cleared the final draft of the new defence blacklisting policy under which no company should face such an action without clear evidence of corruption or criminality.

His remarks came close on the heels of the Scorpene leak which French company DCNS says it is probing.

“Companies in future will not be indiscriminately blacklisted unless the charges against them are criminal in nature or they have committed a crime like stealing documents or paying a bribe. Even the fact that allegations against a defence supplier are being examined by the CBI will not be a reason for blacklisting since the CBI can take 10 years to examine and finalise a case. And at the end of it all, the CBI may find the case is not strong enough for conviction,” said Parrikar.

The Minister said that fresh “guidelines” for blacklisting defence firms were in a brief policy document which was not even 10 pages long and had been sent by the MoD to the Ministry of Law for clearance. He added, “In it, we have listed various pre-blacklisting stages such as the imposition of fines and penalties which would have been stated either in the contract signed with the company or the integrity pact signed by them. Other conditions are also stipulated in the RFP (Request For Proposal). A violation of the integrity pact or the presence of an undisclosed consultant, for instance, could invoke a pre-fixed penalty but will not result in the company being blacklisted.”

He said he has been vetting all important defence contracts. “What I can say clearly is that nobody can influence my decisions and that is why, at least from the top echelons, I know the contracts we sign are clean. There is no element of mistrust. India always benefits from purchase of weapons and equipment in a multi-vendor situation and that is why, in the new policy, we have made clear criminality alone the basis for any future blacklisting. There is no point of putting deals on hold and slowing down defence procurement.”

Senate Retains Law Firm For “Personnel Matter”

Among the payments approved by Comptroller Tom DiNapoli’s office in recent weeks was a $9,000 fee for a law firm representing the state Senate in a personnel matter.

A Senate spokesman declined to comment on the hiring of Kraus & Zuchlewski LLP, citing the unnamed personnel matter.

The firm has been hired in the past by the Senate in order to handle a harassment complaint in the office of Sen. Tony Avella, a Queens Democrat, in 2012. Avella himself was not the target of the complaint.

Democratic Sen. Marc Panepinto of Buffalo abruptly announced this year he would not seek another term in the chamber, at the time citing a “personnel matter” as well as allegations of sexual misconduct.

The Assembly, too, continues to spend on legal fees related to sexual harassment investigations.

DiNapoli’s office reported a combined $85,000 was approved to two firms that have represented the chamber in the ongoing review of harassment policy. The law firms were retained following a spate of sexual harassment scandals involving state lawmakers.

FSB survey: 'Unfair contract terms costing small firms billions'

MORE than half of UK small businesses say they have been hit by “unfair” contract terms with suppliers, according to research putting the total cost to small firms at nearly £4 billion over the last three years.

The Federation of Small Businesses cited problems for firms in terms of contracts with some utilities and providers of professional services such as human resources and legal advice.

Small businesses voiced concerns that some suppliers were failing to make auto-rollover clauses clear up front, tying firms into lengthy notice periods, charging high early termination fees, and putting details in small print. Each of these issues was highlighted by at least 20 per cent of survey respondents.

Two in five small firms said they felt powerless to do anything about unfair contract terms because the supplier was too important or powerful to challenge.

Colin Borland, who is senior head of external affairs for devolved nations

for the Federation of Small Businesses and is based in Scotland, said: “The law seems to have this idea that, when a small business contracts with a large multinational, they are negotiating as equals. Of course we know it’s nothing like that.

“Smaller businesses are more like consumers and so should enjoy the same rights – especially when dealing with standard form contracts where there’s no negotiation.

He added: “That is why we have argued that the Scottish Parliament should use the new consumer advocacy and advice powers it now holds to offer smaller businesses the protection they need.”

Mike Cherry, FSB national chairman, said: “Small firms on the bad end of a deal are losing out to the tune of £1.3 billion each year. We have identified persistent problems with suppliers, across sectors, treating small firms unfairly. This suggests the market is failing to deliver value-for-money products and services for small business customers.”

He added: “Small businesses don’t have the time, expertise or purchasing power to scour the market to find and negotiate the best deals. Small business owners behave in a similar ways to consumers, but they don’t have the same guarantees of quality or legal redress in an unfair situation.”
