Dip in Procurement and Contracting Local Government – Contract Stream – Final Activity 3 – Contract Scenarios – Scenario 3 – LGP

Activity
Materials

Before the contract can be signed you need to conduct a negotiation with the vendor to agree on the following issues:

  • Section 10. SPECIFIED BRANDS OF GOODS

(Where a particular brand of Goods is specified in the Contract, no other brand shall be supplied unless otherwise approved in writing by the Principal.)

  • Contractor wants this clause removed as it can be hard to get particular brands at times due to your remote location and this could stop them from complying with the contract without a lot of red tape
  • Section 23. PAYMENT

(Currently set to 30 days from receipt of correctly rendered invoice)

  • Contractor wants this changed to 14 days as they are a small business and can’t afford to carry the debt for 30 days

Use the Meeting agenda template (Final Activity Handout 3) below to create your negotiations agenda.
