Contract Language Service

Even though 75% of buyer survey respondents use standardized contract templates, almost 80% identify the development of contract documents and legal review process as at least sometimes a procurement bottleneck. This is a strong indicator that existing standardized contract language is insufficient for many procurement tasks, and that improving this part of the procurement toolkit stands to significantly simplify and improve DER procurement.

With this service package, we propose to provide tailored contract language that is designed to target and circumvent a collection of typical obstacles that appear when using standardized contract templates in DER product procurement. This should reduce the frequency of procurement bottlenecks and therefore provide a valuable service to institutional buyers.
