Final invoice due Net 30.

 

PRICE:  The price stated above for this project is based upon the complete system being purchased and installed at one time.  In the event the Customer selects to purchase less than the total project, delays purchase of any portion of the system, requires that the system be installed in phases, or delays the installation, Lantek reserves the right to charge for additional labor, travel, and overhead.  The price is valid for 60 days from the date of this proposal.

 

TAXES:   Taxes are the responsibility of the client.  When invoiced, Lantek Communications will include taxes unless we are provided a Tax Exception Form or is a listed Government agency.

 

 

 

INSTALLATION INITIATION

 

Lantek AVC must receive the signed contract, and a Purchase Order or down payment prior to the contract being initiated by Lantek.  Without the signed contract, purchase order or down payment being received by Lantek, no work on the contract will begin, including the purchase of equipment and scheduling the work crews for installation.

 

 

CHANGES:  Any Customer Change Orders (CCO) must be approved in writing by the customer prior to execution by Lantek and are subject to the credit terms of this agreement.  

 

  

INSTALLATION SCHEDULE

 

In addition to the installation, Lantek will create system drawings, purchase the equipment, assemble the equipment in our staging lab, program the control software as required and do in-shop testing.  This work will take approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the beginning of actual installation at your facility.

 

Lantek schedules its work force weeks in advance in order to meet the installation completion dates of all of its customers.  As a consequence, it is vital that the Customer notify your Lantek Project Manager in the event there is a change in the schedule or the Customer's other contractors fall behind in completing their portion of the work.  If these delays cause labor overages for Lantek, the customer is responsible to pay for those labor overages in addition to the proposed total.

 

Lantek business houses are Monday – Friday from 7am to 5pm.   If during the installation the client requests installation to occur after business hours or weekends, Lantek will charge for the overtime labor in addition to the quoted labor unless included in the scope of work and quote.
