S.C. Standard Terms & Conditions: Effective February 2006, the State Procurement Office and the Information Technology Management Office adopted new standardized provisions, clauses, and forms for use in all ITMO and SPO solicitations, all of which are collected in a new publication entitled Uniform State Provisions & Clauses for the Information Technology Management Office & State Procurement Office, Version 1.0, also known as a "Compendium of Standardized Provisions and Clauses that are Commonly Used." This course involves an in-depth, clause-by-clause review of every standardized contract clause in Part VII of the new uniform solicitation format. For a complete review of the Compendium, the Board's procurement offices are offering a three part series of courses, including Compendium Overview (MMO-4-B), which provides an overview, S.C. Standard General Bidding Instructions (MMO-4-C), which reviews Part II.A., and SC Standard Terms & Conditions (MMO-4-D), which covers Part VII. Please consider taking all three. Courses must be attended in the order listed above and build on each other.
This course is formerly known as MMO-10B, and is the fourth course of a series of four Legal Courses. In order to receive credit for State Certification, all for courses must be attended. The courses must be taken in the following order: MMO-4-A: SC Legal Aspects of Purchasing MMO-4-B: SC Compendium Overview MMO-4-C: SC General Bidding Practices MMO-4-D: SC Standard Terms & Conditions Course Materials.Please bring the same materials as downloaded for the Compendium class.
This course compliments the course entitled "Uniform State Provisions & Clauses," a/k/a/ the "compendium." While the latter covers the entire compendium, the standard terms and conditions receive only cursory treatment. In this course, the standard terms and conditions will be the focus of the course.
