FIS CEO Iain McIlwee stated:
This is worrying long list given the time available. We need to be having conversations with the supply chain and checking our contracts to ensure that we are not going to get landed with liquidated damages because availability of a product or component becomes an issue. We continue to ask members to come forward with any specific problems that they face and to work with the CPA, CLC, Civil Service and our political masters to ensure that we don’t leave construction in the lurch because of practical problems resulting from political indecision and resource”.
