The Standards in this screen cover a wide variety of topics and weights their importance based on the author's experience negotiating these types of agreements.

However, this screen is not intended to cover every topic that may arise nor dictate the relative importance of each topic that is covered. Use of this screen should be in conjunction with a review of vendor terms by a lawyer or contracts specialist who understands the risk profile of your company and the context surrounding the particular relationship with the vendor. This screen does not provide legal advice. AI accuracy rates vary based on a number of factors so always double-check all AI predictions.
