Guidance Notes definition

Guidance Notes. This clause means what it says – provisions in the ITT and post-tender correspondence will all fall away and the completed contract document with Schedules comprises the entire agreement. It is therefore incumbent on buyers to copy the relevant provisions of the ITT and incorporate the relevant provisions of post-tender correspondence in the Schedules (see the guidance notes to each Schedule). The entire agreement approach avoids the need to refer back to the ITT and other extraneous documents and also has the advantage of allowing all relevant material to be incorporated together in one agreement signed under the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Xxx 0000. When advisers come to look at the contract in future they can be certain that they are seeing the full picture in one document. The entire agreement document should be complete and ready to be signed before commencing the standstill period – if it cannot be pulled together then it is difficult to see how the contract is ready to be awarded.

More Definitions of Guidance Notes

Guidance Notes. Informal dispute resolution mechanisms – discussions, management escalation – should be included in the Management Arrangements. This clause proceeds on the basis that any contractual disputes that cannot be resolved informally are generally referred to arbitration under the Arbitration (Scotland) Xxx 0000. The statutory object of arbitration under the 2010 Act is to resolve disputes fairly, impartially and without unnecessary delay or expense – arbitration is therefore likely to be considerably quicker and cheaper than going to court. The courts will however have jurisdiction to intervene in the limited circumstances contemplated by the 2010 Act. Please note however that there will be circumstances where other forms of alternative dispute resolution may be appropriate such as mediation as referred to in the Management Arrangements. Purchasers should amend this clause to ensure that it meets their specific requirements on how disputes are to be resolved Severability If any provision of this Contract is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision is severed and the remainder of the provisions of this Contract continue in full force and effect as if this Contract had been executed with the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision eliminated.
