Group Mission/Vision: Provide members with insights to new trends and emerging practices in the fields of contracting, commercial and relationship management in the Telecommunications and ICT industry.

Group Charter:  The purpose of the Telecommunications / ICT community of interest is to provide its members with insights to new trends and emerging practices in the fields of contract, commercial and relationship management. While these are in the context of our industry, they draw from knowledge and ideas that are current and relevant in other sectors and those related to the industry (e.g. software and technology). Members participate in open discussions and draw/share from knowledge and ideas that are current and relevant.
 

Goals: A key goal is to improve the performance of contracts and relationships in Telecommunications and Information Communications Technology by the development and sharing of best practices.

The objectives are met by sharing ideas, discussing challenges, exploring new directions and, where appropriate, initiating research or inviting experts to present on key topics in the sector related to contract, commercial and relationship management.  The CoI includes both buy-side and sell-side activities.

Working from home - will we ever go back?

No one wants to go back! Well, that is a slight exaggeration. A recent IACCM poll reveals that 1% of respondents hope for a future where they work exclusively from an office and 12% would prefer 'mainly office'. But that compares with 63% who want to work mainly or entirely from home and 24% who would like a 50/50 balance.

Where is the best place to insert Milestone Payment Terms in a Master Contract with SOW and a Quote

We are updating our Master Agreement template and a question came up internally asking where the best place to insert our Milestone Payment terms. Should it be in the SOW or in the Quote. The Master contract may have multiple SOW's for new projects with associated pricing in the Quote. As a Master template, should the Milestone Payment terms be in the SOW - This will dictate payment terms for all/any new projects, but also we loose the flexible if the customer requires to negotiate for a specific project. If the Milestone Payment terms are in the Quote and SOW, then we may end up with multiply payment terms for similar projects and conflict with the Milestone Payments terms in the SOW.
