testing reveals any damage, error, shortage or deficiency in quality standards, Purchaser shall notify Vendor
within (90) ninety days of the date of delivery. If the Purchaser fails to make any claim within such time or
uses the goods, such failure or such use, as the case may be, shall constitute irrevocable acceptance of the
goods and the waiver of any and all claims with respect thereto.

specified herein or any approved extension thereof; (2) fails to comply with any other provision of the

accordance with its terms; or (4) becomes bankrupt, makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, goes

vendor does not cure such failure within (10) ten days (or more if authorized in writing by Purchaser) after
receipt of notice from Purchaser specifying the failure. Vendor shall notify Purchaser as soon as Vendor
has reason to believe that an event (including an event relating to a subcontractor) constituting a default has
taken place or is about to take place.
4.2. In the event of such termination, Purchaser may, without prejudice to any other rights arising herein or
arising otherwise under law, procure Supplies and Services similar to those so terminated, and Vendor shall
be liable to Purchaser for any excess costs of such similar supplies. In the event of such termination,
Purchaser shall have no obligation to pay for the work done by Vendor, except to the extent payment is
expressly required under this Contract for Supplies and Services delivered to and accepted by Purchaser. In
Purchaser terminates part of this Contract pursuant to this clause, Vendor shall continue the performance of
this Contract to the extent not terminated by Purchaser.
