Source Code Escrow Type Protection for non-software

I am brainstorming ideas for a supplier contract where I want to ensure the technology and services to be provided by the supplier for resale to our end-customer over a long term contract do not disappear, either through supplier insolvency or acquisition. If this were a software deal, I'd ask for source code escrow from the supplier. What would an equivalent level of protection be for a hardware/services solution?

Ask The Expert: How to get really efficient at reviewing contracts!

Love the tactical tips. Very helpful. To add to the bullet point "rules for change tracking / comment use", only one version of the trackable (redline) document should be used between the parties to capture all edits and comments. Sometimes edits come in a different version than what was initiated or they are received via email. Having everything in one place makes the review process easy.

Ask The Expert: Esignatures

The benefits I see most with using E-signature is the reduced cycle-time to contract execution and the reduction in cost (and the paperwork I receive) - now that our sales team does not have to mail an original "wet-signature" document when E-signature is utilized.
