Legal waypoints: Prime/subcontractor relationships: The 'flow down' factor
The "flow down" provision is a common tool used by a prime contractor to simplify the preparation of a subcontract agreement. Rather than repeat and revise the provisions of its prime contract in the actual subcontract document, the prime uses a flow down clause to protect itself from a drafting gap between the two documents.
