Enabling Agreements

NB: In the construction industry, the term «enabling work» generally refers to site preparation work that may take place prior to the work under the main construction contract. Overall, an authorization agreement or authorization contract is similar to a handshake agreement, since an exchange is agreed by the parties to the agreement (e.B. for the supply of goods or services for consideration), in which the very broad conditions are set out, but the detailed conditions are not specified. These agreements are framework agreements that are fully implemented system-wide. All terms and conditions, including services and specific fees, are predefined. The respective agreements are displayed as a reference. Signed agreements and insurance certificates are kept at the Chancellery. Currently, there are two types of such agreements, one for photovoltaic systems and the other for battery storage systems. These types of agreements are known in the industry as power purchase agreements. These MEAs can provide the most important building blocks for campuses to create energy resilience through microgrids that can operate part of the campus in the event of a grid power outage. Other Types of Procurement Vehicles CSU Enabling Framework Agreements These agreements support strategic sourcing efforts at two or more sites by combining common requirements for specific goods and services, avoiding redundant tenders and contracts, maximizing volume discounts, and reducing administrative costs. In the Doha Declaration, the governments of member States agreed that all special and differential treatment provisions are an integral part of the WTO Agreements and that these provisions should be reviewed with a view to strengthening them and making them more effective and operational.

In addition to the legislation expressly provided for in the WTO agreements, measures in favour of developing countries, individually or in groups, may also be taken under derogations from the main WTO rules. Various service contracts with the control of basic services are defined as enabling framework agreements (MEAs). These agreements can only be drawn up by the CSU Chancellery; However, they are developed to provide specific services that are provided to all CSU sites by predetermined providers. The UHC Chancellor`s Office, Capital Planning, Design and Construction (CPDC) has solicited proposals from Underground Utility Mapping (UM) companies to provide various underground utility mapping and investigation services to all UHC campuses through the execution of system-wide Enabling Master Service Agreements (BAAs). Services included in the agreements include, but are not limited to, compiling/coordinating existing procurement documents, reviewing site conditions, technology-based underground detection, caving/excavation, and 2D/3D delivery document development. To initiate and use MEAs, read the following steps and contact construction Management for further assistance: Campuses always have the option to select suppliers from the MEA list or enter into a service contract with another qualified company. When entering into individual service contracts outside the AEM, it is recommended to use the Cx and MBCx scopes specified in the basic AEM agreements for consistency reasons. Contact cpdc`s Department of Architecture and Engineering for more information. The building permit for all UHC projects can be executed directly by the Deputy Campus Building Manager (CDBO) or on his or her behalf by one of the planning audit firms authorized under system-wide agreements. The plan`s audit firms issue only one opinion and one recommendation on compliance with the Code or non-compliance. The CDBO is responsible for making the formal decision for code approval.

Specifically for procurement, a consortium is an association of public educational institutions that share contracts awarded competitively with their members. The University is not required to conduct a tender if a higher education procurement consortium has awarded a supplier for the specific goods or services. The use of consortium agreements must be reviewed and approved by procurement staff. The detailed conditions are set out in a subsequent (or parallel) contract to which the terms of the authorisation agreement are complementary. System-wide commissioning (Cx) and monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx) enabling framework agreements have been concluded to support UHC commissioning efforts. Campuses can enter into contracts with any of the listed MEA companies through their respective MEA agreements. 6. Taking into account the special economic difficulties and special development, financial and trade needs of the least developed countries, developed countries exercise the utmost restraint in seeking concessions or contributions to their commitments to reduce or eliminate tariffs and other barriers to trade between those countries, and the least developed countries are not supposed to: make concessions or contributions that are incompatible with the recognition of those countries` tariffs and other barriers to trade. their particular situation and problems. (c) regional or global agreements between the less developed Parties on the reciprocal reduction or elimination of customs duties and, in accordance with such criteria or conditions as may be imposed by the Parties, on the reciprocal reduction or elimination of non-tariff measures for products imported from each other; (7) Concessions and contributions made by the developed and less developed Parties in accordance with the provisions of the General Agreement and the commitments they undertake should promote the fundamental objectives of the Agreement, including those set out in the Preamble and in Article XXXVI. The less developed Parties expect that their ability to contribute to or negotiate concessions or other mutually agreed measures in accordance with the provisions and procedures of the General Agreement will improve as their economies develop and their trade situation improves, and therefore expect to participate more fully in the framework of rights and obligations under the General Agreement.
