Possible Issues - II
Contract acceptor does not have all specified equipment
Contract acceptor uses incorrect equipment
Contract acceptor does not follow agreed procedures
The contract acceptor does not have all the equipment in the contract specified. This may be overcome by validation work. The contract giver should check that the contract accepter is using the correct equipment. Clauses should have been included in the contract to cover the eventuality.
If the contract accepter does not follow the agreed procedures, it should be penalized exactly the same as if it uses inappropriate equipment.
