1.15 Acceptance

The company, OMC, agreed upon one solution on October 20, 2011. The acceptance was scheduled to take place on the 25th of the same month. Obama Manufacturing Company had the legal right and capacity to decline the system that is supposed to be installed. This may occur if they believe that the system in question is not suitable for the company. Another reason they may decline the installation of the system is if it does not comply to section three of this proposal. Section 3 addresses the requirements of the system that the company requires. On the day scheduled for the acceptance of the solution, it was settled unanimously that the company should pay the vendor 55% of the approved price. The remaining price, 45%, would be cleared when the installation of the system was completed, and the company was satisfied with how it worked. However, this period should not exceed 40 days after the acceptance date. If the company in question exceeds this deadline, the vendor or customer may file a case against the company due to a breach of contract.

1.16 Installation

The proposed system was to be brought to the company on 27 October 2011. The system should have been in excellent condition as well as delivered in its entirety. The vendor was to be in charge of the transportation of the system and its components. Installation was to take place immediately after the system was received in the company, OMC. As expected, the vendor was also in charge of the installation of the system in the company. He or she was required to oversee all processes that pertained to the installation process. In addition to this, the vendor was to provide training to the employees in Obama Manufacturing Company. This was to take place after the installation process was completed. Training is crucial for the OMC employees since they are not conversant with the new system that was installed. This is because the company initially used the manual system as opposed to the computerized system that the new system used. After all the employees involved with the use of this system are trained and the company is sure that, they can handle the new system efficiently, the process of data conversion may begin. Data conversion will include the conversion of the documents of the company from the manual documentation to the computerized format. Documents that will undergo this conversion include the personal details of the employees and the organization’s financial documents, for example. Finally, it was also sanctioned that there should be a representative of the vendor in the first 40 bays of the company’s operation after the installation of the system. This was however optional for the company if it felt that the employees were well equipped to operate the new system.

1.17 Contractor’s Terms and Conditions

The requirements stipulated in the standard contract were to be discussed in the subsequent negotiations, which were to take place between the company and the vendor whose proposal impressed the company. During this consultation, there will be the establishment of a new contract accepted by both parties involved in the talks. As in all legal documents, the contract will require the signatures of the authorized personnel in both parties. The signing of the contract will take place on the awarding date. Obama Manufacturing Company has the right to alter the terms and conditions listed in the standard contract the vender provided initially. In addition to this, OMC also is allowed to change the details of the contract as long as they let the vendor know prior to the signing date. If the vendor agrees upon all these requirements, the contract is ready for signing.
