Under certain circumstances, such as those outlined in paragraph 10 above, Independent Productions may agree to allow the producer to draw down some or the entire contingency budget, where such funding has been included in the production budget.

Approval for such expenditure of the contingency must be cleared by Independent Productions in advance.

Should the agreed contingency sum not be required for production purposes the amount is totally retainable by RTÉ.
