Notes from NERCOMP V&L regarding Walker Terms and Conditions:
· Term of Agreement: Members should be aware that pricing listed in the agreement can change annually based on COLA adjustments (this DOES NOT apply to schools who are under contract with Walker at the time of the adjustment) . Also, please note that after the initial 3-year period, the agreement will auto-renew for 12-month terms unless the member affirmatively terminates the agreement by giving 30 days notice.
· Non-Solicitation: There are penalties up to $20,000 for violations under this clause. We recommend that member institutions have this clause reviewed by internal legal counsel.
NERCOMP negotiates the best prices and terms possible for its members and works with outside legal counsel to facilitate the arrangements between NERCOMP and the vendors. Outside counsel conducts an initial legal review of licenses and agreements on behalf of NERCOMP but does not provide an individualized review on behalf of any particular member institution.
Each member institution signs its agreements or purchase orders with vendors individually and the institution itself is liable for the rights and obligations therein. Members are strongly encouraged to have their agreements reviewed internally by their own counsel. Note that in addition to the agreement posted on the NERCOMP website, additional terms or conditions may be incorporated by reference within the agreements.
In addition, NERCOMP often negotiates separate agreements with vendors governing NERCOMP’s own relationship to the vendor. Although NERCOMP members are not parties to these agreements, NERCOMP will make copies of available to any member for review, upon request.
