19.2 As soon as possible following the reception of the notification of the supplier, the Contracting Authority shall evaluate the situation and may, at his/her discretion, agree or extend the schedule given and the prorogation may be ratified by means of an additional clause to the contract.

19.3 With the exception of the case of a force majeure stipulated in Clause 17 of the General and Administrative Conditions of the Contact, delay on the part of the supplier in the execution of his/her obligations shall expose him/her to the application of one or several penalties provided for in the Clause 26 of the GACC, unless if the prorogation of the deadline have been granted to him/her in virtue of the Clause 4 of the GACC.

20.2 Termination of Contract due to bankruptcy

The Contracting Authority may at any time terminate the contract by a written notification addressed to the Supplier if the latter is declared bankrupt or becomes insolvent.
