Hello Is there any insurance for breach of contract? And at a more generic level, what are the standard exclusions in any insurance policy for defective product liability taken by the supplier . Thanks in advance.
Password protection for Statement of Work (SOW) on client's templates
Hi, What are your thoughts about enabling password protection with tracked changes turned on for SOWs on client's paper? I usually just keep tracked changes on for version control without any password protection if it's a client-provided template.
Future Effective Date Agreements
Good day, all! I oversee a publicly-funded grant program at a metropolitan planning agency in San Diego, CA. In this program, we award funds to grantees who have operating, mobility management (education & outreach), and capital projects for specialized transportation purposes. Each two-year competitive "call for projects," we have around twelve to twenty grantees that end up with around thirty agreements. We see that each call for projects include active grantees that apply for continuous funding for their active projects. Many of these grantees are awarded funds to continue funding projects once their current grant is completed or 100% drawn down. Here's our issue and I'm hoping my fellow IACCM colleagues can help decide a "best practice" to make into a P&P. We have a dozen or so active grantees whose grant agreements don't expire until eight, nine, or ten months in the future and were awarded grant funds to continue running their program after the current agreement ends. This has presented a logistical hurdle and we don't know how to best handle it. We can't decide if we should: a.) simply wait and sit on future grant agreements until the active agreements are close to termination to start the execution process; or b.) send out future agreements now and sit on partially executed agreements until the active agreements are close to termination; or c.) execute agreements with future effective dates and include language that executes the agreement when the current agreement expires. To throw a wrench or two into the picture, any of these funds may be completely drawn down ahead or behind schedule. We don't allow grantees to pull from new grant funds until the old grant funds have been fully expended. For example, a grantee may fully draw down on grant funds ninety days ahead of schedule and then immediately need to draw down on new grant funds to continue maintaining the program. In addition, this is government contracting and we're not the most innovative or proactive folks. So, here's where I look to you all! Can anyone provide some feedback on what's mentioned above? I look forward to hearing from you. Jack Christensen Grants Administrator firstname.lastname@example.org SANDAG (619) 699-6995 401 B Street, Suite 800, San Diego, CA 92101
Contract Signature Responsibility for Sell-Side Contracts
For sell-side contracts in the distribution industry, we have historically allowed the sales manager/director to sign contracts on behalf of the company. The sales organization owns the customer relationship and is ultimately responsible for meeting the customer commitments. In the sell-side contract arena, I am interested in gathering feedback on what functional area/title is responsible for signing contracts in your company and why?

Failure to implement a variation
Based on the facts, that a VO was agreed for both time, cost and a date for implementation. If the VO was not implemented on the agreed date by a contractor, is there a recourse for principal to pass costs [ ie take over that portion of the scope] on to the contractor.
Deltaview - Document comparison software
Hi I was wondering if anyone had experience of using Deltaview (it's a software that compares and tracks changes in contracts). I used it over 6 years ago and found it very useful. I am in a new position now and would like have a trial of it. I was wondering if the same software still exists. Also what the cost was. I have tried to look for information on the internet but have not been really successful. Maybe the name has changed. His anyone using it? I would love their feedback. Pam
General Data Protection Regulation
I'm interested in how SMEs subject to the EU GDPR are dealing with its implementation in their B2B processes. I'm working with one SME EU-based software manufacturer who is still figuring out what data is collected about whom. Although they do collect data about their customers and their customers' end users, they don't perform any analysis on or profiling using the data. I think their implementation of the regulation will be some tightening of security around how the data is collected and held, along with an internal policy. How have you been progressing towards compliance?
Contract template for OEM Distributors
Does any one have a template they use for OEM distributors they can share? We generally have a master agreement with the OEM and the OEM distributors supply goods and services under the terms of the master agreement. I am working on drafting a short agreement template that the OEM distributors will sign acknowledging and accepting to work under the T's & C's of the master agreement instead of us having to enter into separate master agreements with each distributor. I would appreciate your input.
