Given the importance of the scope for the effectiveness of framework contracts, project proponents should resist the temptation to use a framework contract for a completely different type of goods, services or works that were not contemplated at the time of the development of the framework contract. While it may seem desirable to use an existing framework agreement to minimize the costs of negotiating a new agreement, this approach presents considerable risk. This situation is particularly problematic when a supply contract is used for services or services for the plant (or vice versa), since the terms of the framework contract must clearly determine whether the supply of goods, services or work is applicable. In the Harvard Business Review, Mouzas proposes a set of useful guidelines for economic negotiators who should follow in the development of framework agreements, including this one: another important step the parties could take would be to include in their framework agreement a clause that would require them to participate in certain dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and arbitration. , in the event of a serious conflict. This type of contract model allows flexibility in the type and volume of goods or services to be acquired, whereas any contracting does not require full negotiation. Ideally, it is not necessary to negotiate new information when an order is defined as a framework for determining the variables defined in the framework contract itself. For example, while the price of the order must be set in order, it will be based on the rates agreed in the framework contract, thus eliminating the need to negotiate the price. Any complex, complex and ongoing business relationship, subject to a changing environment, would benefit from a well-developed framework contract, one that is constructive, positive and forward-looking, allowing counterparties to seize new opportunities. When developing a framework contract, it is important to consider the end users of the framework contract and the other processes they must manage to ensure that the framework contract is user-friendly and effective. The first category of provisions is binding on the parties to the implementation of the framework contract, while the second and third categories apply only if they are included in an executed contract.
