Ad Hoc Agreements

Ad hoc agreements also lead to situations in which the company becomes dependent on a specific person in the activities of IT service providers. Since there is no commitment that goes beyond the case if there is a problem, the structure of the company`s systems is unknown to anyone who is not directly related to the case. There is no way for the provider to implement standards within the business technology structure or document the environment as it is. Every support engagement will be with someone who doesn`t know the business, its platform architecture, or the possible nuances. This results in an increased risk of unintentional disruption due to a lack of understanding of business structures or, for a long time, the resolution of the current problem. If it is impossible to obtain a fixed price, a maturity agreement should also make known escalations at the beginning of the agreement. The supply of hardware and software may also be included in the execution agreement, bringing the support agreement closer to the fully outsourced IT model, which in itself may exempt the company from legacy restrictions and depreciation cycles. Ask your potential provider for SKUs of similar sizes or types of customers they already interact with. Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that settles disputes between two parties outside the traditional judicial system. In arbitration proceedings, the parties to the dispute refer to one or more persons called “arbitrators” or “arbitrators” – by the decision or arbitral award to which they undertake to be bound.
