Understand Common IT Contract Provisions to Negotiate More Effectively

Avoid the pitfalls and gotchas lurking in the shadows!

Book This Workshop

Failure to understand common IT contract provisions subjects a reviewer to:

  • Unnecessary or surprise payment obligations
  • An inability to terminate the contract when appropriate
  • Vague obligations and responsibilities for the customer
  • Focusing on the wrong issues when negotiating

Understanding contract language allows for:

  • Improved communication with Legal and the vendor
  • Increased awareness of potential risks
  • Avoidance of potentially ambiguous commitments by the vendor
  • Increased accountability from the vendor
