Not Using Clauses that do Not Apply

Hi Guys, I just got back a contract which was redlined by a supplier/contractor. There are a number of standard clauses which we use in our contract and some would not apply for this service with the supplier. For example, "it shall be responsible for the adequacy, stability and safety of all operations on the Company's premises and of all methods of installation and commissioning of the Goods and performance of the Services;" With this service the contractor does not have to install and commission but only supply and we would be doing the installation and commissioning. Question: Instead of us removing the clause entirely can I just leave it in and place (N/A or Not Used) at the beginning of the clause which do not apply?

Contract Forgery and other Fraud (Sell-side POV) - What preventive controls do you have in place and does your organization allow sellers to send contracts to customers directly for signature/review

Hello Folks: We have a number of processes in place to present various types of contract fraud for example customer forgery or side letters which we do not tolerate. However, on occasion we do face issues. Its not a major problem, however, we are looking to reduce the risk as much as possible. I have two questions. 1. How have others in the community mitigated this risk with process, technology and people, etc. 2. Does your organization allow sellers to send contracts to customers directly for signature or review (e.g, email, e-signature, etc.) of this entire process handled by a contracts or legal team only? Thanks in advance for your feedback.


Modular Contracting Discussion / Help Needed!

HI: I would love to chat about your entity's experience with implementing a Modular Contracting system. From a look, feel, and integration perspective, I am part of a group running into some challenges that I believe previous experiences have probably already experienced and solved for. From a substantive standpoint, some questions about order of precedence, survival, SOW/purchase order term co-alignment and other questions. Is anybody able to share their experience and/or willing to share a rule/bylaws document? Thanks so much!
