Resource Planning Tool for Contracts Teams

Currently reviewing the different techniques of developing a contracts team resourcing plan that caters for number of contracts, the complexity of contracts, budget allocation per position. Looking to utilise an automated tool if possible. If anyone has any examples would appreciate heads up. Thank you.


Non-responsive Contractor

Few sub-contractors of an earlier project were due certain certified amounts as part of their Final Bills. However, the payments were not released due to non-submission of statutory compliance documents. It so happens that a few of these sub-contractors are now either not reachable / traceable and are not responding to any letters / emails etc. In such a context, how does the company remove the liability of payment due to non-response by the sub-contractor?


Warranty & Discontinuation of Product

Hi everybody, Now we have a situation here in terms of warranty and product discontinuation : A large facility was being constructed which required ~1500 architecturally exposed fixtures of a particular style/model. A Purchase Order was drawn up with terms of Warranty of 10 years. This was in 2014. Cut to 2019, replacement of 9 fixtures are required (5# attributable under warranty provisions + 4# misused by the Purchaser) and it is now learnt that the fixtures itself is discontinued from the product line since 2017. It is not possible to install 9 fixtures of a different model / look as these are architecturally exposed fixtures / products. The Supplier has politely declined to answer the conflict of giving a 10 year warranty ending 2024 and discontinuing the product in 2017. Q1: Advise on possible ways such a situation has been contractually dealt with. Q2: How can one estimate the damages towards default by the Supplier in committing to its obligations under the Warranty Period, since the product has been discontinued? Thanks in Advance
