Our experience fulfilling government contracts has dictated our established company-wide Purchase Order policies as stated below:
Purchase Orders are given for immediate acceptance by the Seller. Unless promptly notified to the contrary, the Purchaser will assume that the Seller accepts the Purchase Order as written and that he will make prompt delivery on or before the date specified.
Shipping terms must be listed on the original Purchase Order. Sierra Pacific Innovations does not accept C.O.D. shipments, unless explicitly stated on the Purchase Order.
A copy of each packing slip, bill of lading, freight, and expense bills applicable to this order will be mailed or faxed to the Consignee. All shipping papers must show the declared value of all items.
No extra charge will be allowed for packing, cartage, or containers, unless so specified in the Purchase Order.
The Purchaser reserves the right to cancel this entire order or any portion thereof if the Seller fails to make delivery as specified.
Inspection by the Purchaser prior to shipment does not relieve the Seller of full responsibility for furnishing articles strictly in accordance with specifications.
The Purchaser reserves the right to reject at destination, and hold at Seller's risk, any article supplied by the Seller which does not conform to the specifications or description embodied in the Purchase Order or which is inferior in any respect to the article specified. Any article bought by sample which is inferior in quality to the sample by Seller can be rejected.
Quantities furnished in excess of those specified in this order will not be accepted and will be held at Seller's risk.
No change in quantities, price, specifications, terms, or shipping instructions as set forth in the Purchase Order will be allowed except on written authority of the Purchasing Agent. Sierra Pacific Innovations will submit a mailed or faxed invoice, as specified by the Purchasing Agent. The cash discount period on all invoices shall commence on the date on which the correctly completed invoice or shipment is received by Sierra Pacific Innovations, whichever is later. If an adjustment or damage occurs on a shipment subject to cash discount, discount will be taken effective on the date final approval for payment is authorized.
The Seller warrants that the materials supplied under this purchase order are free of liens.
Except for payments of sums due, neither party shall be liable to the other nor deemed in default under this Contract if and to the extent that such party's performance of this Contract is prevented by force majeure. The term "force majeure" means an occurrence that is beyond the control of the party affected and occurs without its fault or negligence. Without limiting the foregoing, force majeure includes acts of God; acts of public enemy; war; riots; strikes; mobilization; labor disputes; civil disorders; fire; flood; lockouts; injunctions-interventions-acts; or failures or refusals to act by government authority; and other similar occurrences beyond the control of the party declaring force majeur which such party is unable to prevent by exercising reasonable diligence.
