Contract Creating and Management Paper
This research paper will present information gleaned from the simulation “Contract Creation and Management” concerning contract provisions between Span Systems and Citizen-Schwartz AG (C-S). A contract is a promise or exchange of promises (Reed, Shedd, Morehead, and Corley, 2004, p 215). When both parties initially agreed to the terms of the contract, the duty of performance became binding. Therefore, failure to perform resulted in a breach of contract (Reed, Shedd, Morehead, and Corley, 2004, p 243). The paper will identify the risks and needs of each company, specify contract elements, and identify if those elements are present in the simulation. Team C will create revised contract provisions, specifically pertaining to performance, change control, communications and reporting, project structure, and dispute resolution. These revised provisions will address the needs of both parties and minimize the party’s risks, as well any breaches of contract.

The low quality may cause C-S to lose customers if the software does not function properly. Span needs to increase the timeline and number of workers to address the issues of delivery slippage...
