Acceptance of Terms
These Terms are expressly conditioned on Supplier’s acceptance of all the terms and conditions set forth herein as attached to the Purchase Order issued by TIPA to the Supplier (”PO”). TIPA expressly objects to any additions, deletions or differences in the terms or conditions contained in Supplier’s quotation, proposal, acknowledgment or other document, whether or not such additions, deletions or differences materially alter these Terms. These Terms may be issued in addition to other duly signed TIPA agreements, exhibits and schedules incorporated therein (“Agreement”) made with respect to the subject matter of these Terms. In the event of an inconsistency or conflict between the provisions of any Agreement and these Terms, the inconsistency or conflict will be resolved by giving precedence in the following order: (a) the Agreement; (b) the PO; (c) these Terms, and (d) other provisions when attached and agreed to in writing by the Parties.

Supplier will promptly advise TIPA of any delay in performance. Supplier’s performance is not deemed completed until the goods or services have been accepted by TIPA. All goods shipped under these Terms are to be shipped DAP, unless specified differently in the applicable PO.
All goods and services purchased hereunder are subject to inspection by TIPA at all reasonable times and places notwithstanding the terms of payment, and in any event, prior to final acceptance. No inspection made prior to final acceptance will relieve Supplier from responsibility for failure to meet the requirements of these Terms. In the event the goods or services do not meet the applicable specifications and instructions, Supplier will promptly re-perform the nonconforming services or provide replacement goods satisfactory to TIPA at Supplier’s sole expense. If Supplier is unable to accomplish the foregoing, TIPA may procure such goods or services from another source and charge to Supplier’s account all costs, expenses and damages associated therewith.
Invoices must contain the following information: PO number, part numbers, description of services, prices, extended totals and attach all supporting documentation, if any.

Invoices submitted hereunder will be paid Net 30 days after receipt of a correct invoice or acceptance of goods or services by TIPA, whichever occurs later, unless specified otherwise in the applicable PO. Any adjustments in Supplier’s invoices due to late performance, rejections or other failure to comply with the requirements of these Terms may be made by TIPA before payment. Payment does not constitute final acceptance. TIPA may offset against any payment hereunder any amount owed to TIPA by Supplier or its affiliates.
TIPA may, by written notice to Supplier make changes to any one or more of the following (“Change”): (a) specifications for services or goods, (b) quantity, and (c) place and/or time of performance. For any reason, TIPA may also direct Supplier to suspend in whole or in part the provision of goods or the performance of services hereunder permanently or for such period of time as may be determined by TIPA to be necessary or desirable and that should also be considered as Change. If any such Change causes an increase or decrease in the cost or time required for the performance of services or provision of goods hereunder, an adjustment may be made in the price or delivery schedule, or both, and the Terms will be modified accordingly, provided that the adjustment in pricing was communicated to TIPA when TIPA informed about the Change and TIPA decided to continue with the Change. Any claim for adjustment by Supplier will be deemed waived unless asserted in writing within five (5) days from receipt by Supplier of the notice of Change.
