Terms and Conditions
SECTION 1. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The equipment, supplies or services furnished shall be exactly as specified in this order, free from all defects in Seller's design, workmanship and materials, and, except as otherwise provided in this order, shall be subject to inspection and test by University of Denver (DU) at all times and places. If, prior to final acceptance, any equipment, supplies or services are found to be defective or not as specified, DU may reject them, require Seller to correct them without charge, or require delivery of such equipment, supplies or services at a reduction in price which is equitable under the circumstances. If Seller is unable or refuses to correct such items within a time deemed reasonable by DU, DU may terminate the order in whole or in part. Seller shall bear all risks as to rejected equipment, supplies and services and, in addition to any costs for which Seller may become liable to DU under other provisions of this order, shall reimburse DU for all transportation cost, other related costs incurred, or payments to Seller in accordance with the terms of this order for unaccepted equipment, supplies and service. Notwithstanding final acceptance and payment, Seller shall be liable for latent defects, fraud or such gross mistakes as amount to fraud. Any test programs and procedures required by the specifications are in addition to, and do not limit, DU's rights provided in this Article.
Seller warrants the articles delivered hereunder to be free from defects in labor, material and manufacture, and to be in compliance, with any drawings or specifications incorporated or referenced herein and with any samples furnished by the Seller.
This order is assignable by DU. Except as to any payment due hereunder, this order is not assignable by Seller without written approval of DU.
DU may make changes within the general scope of this order by giving notice to Seller and subsequently confirming such changes in writing. If such changes affect the cost of, or the time required for performance of this order, an equitable adjustment in the price or delivery of both shall be made. No change by Seller shall be recognized without written approval of DU. Any claim of Seller for an adjustment under this Article must be made in writing within thirty (30) days from the date of receipt by Seller of notification of such changes unless DU waives this condition. Nothing in this Article shall excuse Seller from proceeding with performance of the order as changed hereunder.
5. LABOR DISPUTES
Seller shall give prompt notice to DU of any actual or potential labor dispute which delays or may delay timely performance of this order.
6. TERMINATION AND DELAYS
DU may by written notice stating the extent and effective date, terminate this order for convenience in whole or in part, at any time, DU shall pay Seller as full compensation for performance until such termination: (1) the unit or pro rata order price for the delivered and accepted portion; and (2) a reasonable amount, not otherwise recoverable from other sources by Seller as approved by DU with respect to the undelivered or unaccepted portion of this order, provided compensation hereunder shall in no event exceed the total order price. DU may by written notice terminate this order for Seller's default, in whole or in part, at any time, if Seller refuses or fails to comply with the provision of this order, or so fails to make progress as to endanger performance and does not cure such failure within a reasonable period of time, or fails to make deliveries of the items or services within the time specified or any written extension thereof. In such event, DU may purchase or otherwise secure items or services and, except as otherwise provided herein, Seller shall be liable to DU for any excess costs occasioned DU thereby.
If, after notice or termination for default, DU determines that the Seller was not in default or that the failure to perform this order is due to causes beyond the control and without the fault or negligence of Seller (including, but not restricted to, acts of God or of the public enemy, acts of DU, acts of Government, fires, floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, strikes, freight embargoes, unusually severe weather, and delays of a subcontractor or supplier due to such causes and without the fault or negligence of the subcontractor or supplier), termination shall be deemed for the convenience of DU, unless DU shall determine that the items or services covered by this order were obtainable from other sources in sufficient time to meet the required delivery schedule.
If DU determines that Seller has been delayed in the work due to causes beyond the control and without the fault or negligence of the Seller, DU may extend the time for completion of the work called for by this order, when promptly applied for in writing by Seller, and if such delay is due to failure of DU, not caused or contributed to by Seller, to perform services or deliver property in accordance with the terms of the order, the time and price of the order shall be subject to change under the Changes Article. Sole remedy of Seller in event of delay by failure of DU to perform shall, however, be limited to any money actually and necessarily expended in the work during the period of delay, solely by reason of delay. No allowance will be made for anticipated profits.
The rights and remedies of DU provided in this Article shall not be exclusive and are in addition to any other rights and remedies provided by law or under this order. As used in this Article, the word "Seller" includes Seller and his sub-suppliers at any time.
