HBS will communicate all available official tender documents and other available information to SAGEM, together with the explicit request for the submittal of Project Specific Work proposals including pricing, estimated time period needed to perform it, and other commercially and technically needed commitments. HBS and SAGEM will work in cooperation to clarify all points of the tender. SAGEM will then transmit in due time its price proposals to HBS which may include different options.

For each Project Specific Work, Sagem shall prepare and submit to HBS an official commercial proposal no later than 1 week before the submittance of HBS’s proposal in the frame of the tender, and HBS shall order with reference to this commercial proposal from Sagem. If such proposal is not available and received by HBS in due time ahead of the dead line for the tender response, and if the German end user is not willing to extend the dead line for submission of tender responses, then HBS will be free to either exclude that part of the requested tender item from the response or to include a solution from HBS or any other third party for the requested tender item. In such case HBS shall inform Sagem of what it has proposed to the customer.

1.3 Warranty

Warranty period for all software and any dongles from Sagem shall be 12 months from their date of delivery to HBS.

HBS will maintain a report log of the use of all runtime licenses on end user systems and send it to SAGEM upon SAGEM’s request.

During the warranty period, Sagem shall fix all problems of its software and corresponding hardware dongles reported to SAGEM by HBS and acknowledged by SAGEM.

1.4 Acceptance tests

 

Page 4


Since the Basic Software and the Basic Software Options are standard software provided by SAGEM to Customers world-wide, no acceptance test will be performed for this software alone.

For any Customized Basic Software provided by SAGEM and any Project Specific Work Sagem and HBS will perform their internal acceptance tests as requested by their internal quality assurance rules. Sagem and HBS will allow each other to participate during such internal acceptance tests. Regardless of that HBS will promptly inform Sagem about any difficulty or non-performance which might occur during HBS internal or HBS performed end user acceptance tests. Given the nature of the Customized Basic Software, Sagem and HBS agree that the end user in Sachsen-Anhalt and any further customer shall be the party able to confirm the acceptance of the delivered software, insofar Sagem’s and HBS’ internal acceptance tests are of a preliminary nature.

However it is agreed that the Customized Basic Software shall be accepted by HBS acting on behalf of itself no later than one month after the delivery of the Customized Basic Software even if the Acceptance is not signed yet by the End User unless the delay in the Acceptance test is attributable to SAGEM.

At any time prior to the date three months after the expiration or termination of the Project Term, SAGEM may order an additional 15% of the Project Unit Volume at the Project Order Price; provided, however, that the project name must be included in the purchase order.
