Customer-generated forms: Customer-generated forms must be thoroughly reviewed to determine if they contain an acceptable definition of business and domain. The fundamental elements of a realistic collective agreement for professional services are: a standard of care; Equity in deleging tasks, powers and risks; A clearly defined level of performance and the language that is clear. During negotiations and the contract execution priority, it is necessary to determine whether the risks associated with the relationship are adequately addressed by a particular language in the agreement, by representation, guarantee, delay and the allocation of risk clauses. The best way to do this is to review the final project by a competent person (for example. B, a representative of the Strategic Procurement or the Office of the General Council) who is not directly responsible for the ratification of the agreement. These contract revisions generally include: 1) estimating the magnitude of identified risks associated with the desired business entity; 2) the decision if the projected effects of these risks exceed the buyer`s risk-taking; and 3) the evaluation and implementation of appropriate transmission and/or financing mechanisms for losses exceeding reported risk tolerances, the underlying profitability of which does not support the hypothesis. Continuous service contracts: A long-term service contract with a customer may result in prescription and prescription requests related to code or standards changes and result in a risk that far exceeds negotiated compensation. The Risk Financing and Insurance Division has published recommended standards for contract risk management, which apply to the different scenarios that most procurement managers, contract specialists or leasing agents are likely to face. In general, the most fundamental risk management tool that university buyers can and should use when entering into an agreement is to select and thoroughly monitor their counterparties to ensure that they have the means and capabilities to provide the desired goods or provide the agreed level of service. In addition, people who prepare and/or negotiate agreements should consider these attributes as a standard practice for all contracts (2): Our commitment begins before there is a claim.
