1.2 Where applicable, to complete the work(s) outlined in the Scope of Work, the Consultant will require access to various Client utility related data.

Duration

1.4 The agreement may be terminated by either the Client or the Consultant on the agreed anniversary of the Start Date by giving three months’ notice in writing to the other. If three months’ notice is not given by either party by the end of the Initial Period, the agreement will be automatically extended by 12 months to give time for contract renegotiations and to ensure that services to the Client are not disrupted. Thereafter, the contract can be terminated by either party giving three months of notice.

1.5 The Consultant reserves the right to adjust the base fixed fee after the first year of the contract and/or in the optional 12-month extension period. If the Client does not agree to the proposed fee increase, they have the option to terminate the contract by giving three months of notice, with the notice period being charged at the original base fee.

1.6 The Consultant will notify the Client in writing at least three months in advance of the optional 12-month extension period end date, regarding the Client’s options for renegotiating the ongoing utility management support, as delivered by the Consultant. After expiry of the optional 12-month extension period, if the Client has not agreed a new contract with the Consultant or provided 3-months’ notice to terminate, the ongoing utility management support will be automatically extended on a rolling three-month basis and will be subject to our Deemed Contract Pricing uplift of 30% over the current annual management fee.

1.7 After the expiry of the 12-month extension period, the Consultant reserves the right to increase the annual management fee on the first day of April each calendar year by the prevailing rate of CPI in the United Kingdom.

1.8 In the event of termination of this agreement for any reason whatsoever, any amounts due to the Consultant shall be payable on demand.

General

1.17 The Consultant and the Client shall both be required to act in good faith, honestly and reliably for the entire duration of this agreement.

1.18 For the avoidance of doubt, the Client may not use another consultant or perform the Services itself or use the contents of any reports to agree new tariffs or arrangements directly with its suppliers, thus bypassing the Consultant. Should the Client take this action then a charge equal to a full 12 months of fees will be payable by the Client to the Consultant within 14 days of the invoice being issued by the Consultant and the Client being notified by the Consultant that such a breach of contract has occurred in relation to this clause.

1.19 For avoidance of doubt, the Consultant will carry out procurement work for the Client and the Client will be informed when those tenders summaries will be returned. A decision on which tender to accept will be expected from the Client on the day the tenders are returned to lock in quoted prices. If the Client fails to decide and inform the Consultant before 16:00 on the date the tenders are returned, it may be necessary for the procurement to be tendered again and any previously quoted prices may not remain valid. The Consultant reserves the right to charge the Client for such additional work at up to £500 for each procurement tender refresh thereafter.

1.20 Nothing in this agreement shall render the Consultant an employee, agent or partner of the Client.

1.21 This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and any amendments to its provision shall only be valid if made in writing between the parties.
