  6.7 Adjustment Only Through Change Order.

  Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, no change in the requirements of this Agreement, whether an addition to, deletion from, suspension of or modification to this Agreement, including any Work, shall be the basis for an adjustment for any change in the Contract Price, the Project Schedule, Payment Schedule, any Work, any of the Minimum Acceptance Criteria or Performance Guarantee or any other obligations of Contractor or right of Owner under this Agreement unless and until such addition, deletion, suspension or modification has been authorized by a Change Order executed and issued in accordance with and in strict compliance with the requirements of this Section 6.7. Contractor shall not perform any change in the Work unless and until such change is authorized pursuant to this Section 6.7, and should Contractor perform or claim to perform any changes in the Work prior to authorization by Change Order, all such costs and expenses incurred by Contractor shall be for Contractor’s account. No course of conduct or dealings between the Parties, nor implied acceptance of additions, deletions, suspensions or modifications to this Agreement, including any Work, and no claim that Owner has been unjustly enriched by any such addition, deletion, suspension or modification to this Agreement, whether or not there is in fact any such unjust enrichment, shall be the basis for any claim for an adjustment in the Contract Price, the Project Schedule, the Payment Schedule, any Work, any of the Minimum Acceptance Criteria or Performance Guarantee or any other obligations of Contractor under this Agreement.

  6.8 Force Majeure.

  A. Contractor Relief. If the commencement, prosecution or completion of the Work is prevented or delayed by Force Majeure (including the effects of such Force Majeure), then Contractor shall be entitled to an extension to the Target Substantial Completion Dates and/or Guaranteed Substantial Completion Dates to the extent, if any, permitted under Section 6.8A.1 and an adjustment to the Contract Price to the extent, if any, permitted under Section 6.8A.2, provided that Contractor has complied with the notice and Change Order requirements in Section 6.5 and the mitigation requirements in Section 6.11. In addition, if Force Majeure (including the effects of such Force Majeure) prevents Contractor’s performance with respect to any portion of the Work, Contractor shall, subject to Section 6.11, be relieved from performance of such portion of the Work for the time period that such Force Majeure, or the effects of such Force Majeure, are continuing. All time extensions to the Project Schedule and adjustments to the Contract Price for such delays or preventions shall be by Change Order implemented and documented as required under this Article 6.

  1. Time Extension. Contractor shall be entitled to an extension to the applicable Target Substantial Completion Dates and/or Guaranteed Substantial Completion Dates for delay or prevention that meets the requirements of this Section 6.8A, if and to the extent such delay or prevention causes a delay in the critical path of the Work. Contractor shall demonstrate to Owner its entitlement to relief under this Section by providing to Owner an updated CPM Schedule using Primavera Project Planner in its native electronic format with actual durations entered for all activities on the critical path and re-forecasted clearly to indicate Contractor’s entitlement to a time extension under this Section 6.8A. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any adjustment to the Target Substantial Completion Date(s) shall extend the Guaranteed Substantial Completion Dates in the same amounts so that the Guaranteed Substantial Completion Date for Subproject 1 is always one hundred five (105) Days after the Target Substantial Completion Date for Subproject 1 and the Guaranteed Substantial Completion Date for Subproject 2 is always one hundred five (105) Days after the Target Substantial Completion Date for Subproject 2, regardless of whether the delay impacts only the critical path of the Work to achieve the applicable Target Substantial Completion Date and not the applicable Guaranteed Substantial Completion Date.

  2. Compensation. Contractor shall be entitled to an adjustment to the Contract Price for any delay or prevention that meets the requirements of this Section 6.8A, if such delay or prevention, alone or in conjunction with other Force Majeure Events, continues for a period of at least thirty (30) Days, in the aggregate. Any such Contract Price adjustment shall be for reasonable costs necessarily incurred by Contractor for delay or prevention occurring after the expiration of such thirty (30) Day period; provided that Owner’s total liability under this Agreement for any such Contract Price adjustment(s) for all such events occurring during the term of this Agreement shall not exceed Fifty Million U.S. Dollars (U.S.$50,000,000) in the aggregate.

  B. Owner Relief. Subject to Section 6.8C, Owner’s obligations under this Agreement shall be suspended to the extent that performance of such obligations is delayed or prevented by Force Majeure, but without prejudice to Contractor’s entitlement to a Change Order to the extent set forth in Section 6.2A.

  C. Payment Obligations. No obligation of a Party to pay moneys under or pursuant to this Agreement shall be excused by reason of Force Majeure.

  6.9 Extensions of Time and Adjustment of Compensation.

  With respect to any of the circumstances set forth in Section 6.2A which cause delay of the commencement, prosecution or completion of the Work for which Contractor is entitled to a Change Order (with the exception of delay resulting from an event of Force Majeure, which shall be governed in accordance with Section 6.8), Contractor shall be entitled to an extension to the applicable Target Substantial Completion Dates and Guaranteed Substantial Completion Dates if and to the extent: (i) such delay causes a delay in the critical path of the Work; (ii) Contractor has complied with the notice and Change Order requirements in Section 6.5 and the mitigation requirements of Section 6.11; and (iii) such delay is not attributable to Contractor or any of its Subcontractors or Sub-subcontractors. Contractor shall demonstrate to Owner its entitlement to relief under this Section by providing to Owner an updated CPM Schedule using Primavera Project Planner in its native electronic format with actual durations entered for all activities on the critical path and re-forecasted clearly to indicate Contractor’s entitlement to a time extension under this Section 6.9. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any adjustment to the Target Substantial Completion Date(s) shall extend the Guaranteed Substantial Completion Dates in the same amounts so that the Guaranteed Substantial Completion Date for Subproject 1 is always one hundred five (105) Days after the Target Substantial Completion Date for Subproject 1 and the Guaranteed Substantial Completion Date for Subproject 2 is always one hundred five (105) Days after the Target Substantial Completion Date for Subproject 2, regardless of whether the delay impacts only the critical path of the Work to achieve the applicable Target Substantial Completion Date and not the applicable Guaranteed Substantial Completion Date. Contractor shall be entitled to an adjustment to the Contract Price for reasonable, additional costs incurred by Contractor for delay or in mitigation or avoidance of a delay which would otherwise meet such requirements of this Section 6.9. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 6.9 shall govern the determination of any right of Contractor to an adjustment to the applicable Target Substantial Completion Dates and Guaranteed Substantial Completion Dates for delay unless such delay is caused by Force Majeure.

  6.10 Delay.

  For the purposes of this Agreement, the term “delay” shall include hindrances, disruptions or obstructions, or any other similar term in the industry and the resulting impact from such hindrances, disruptions or obstructions, including inefficiency, impact, ripple or lost production.

  6.11 Contractor Obligation to Mitigate Delay.

  Contractor shall not be entitled to any adjustment to the Project Schedule or adjustment to the Contract Price for any portion of delay to the extent Contractor could have taken, but failed to take, reasonable actions to mitigate such delay.

  1. amounts for Milestones Contractor plans to fully complete during the next Month (“Month N+1”), as supported by the sixty (60) Day look-ahead schedule submitted with such Invoice. Contractor shall not include any amounts for any Milestones that will only be partially completed at the end of Month N+1;

  5. less amounts Invoiced in Month N-3 for (i) time and material Change Orders, and (ii) Provisional Sums that Contractor did not incur in Month N-2.

  If Owner pays Contractor for the completion of a Milestone in Month N+1, but Contractor does not complete such Milestone during such Month N+1, and Owner exercises its right to withhold payment in accordance with Section 7.2 for such uncompleted Milestone, Contractor shall not be entitled to Invoice for the amount withheld by Owner for such Milestone until the Month after Contractor completes such Milestone.

  Contractor shall include with such Invoice a sixty (60) Day look-ahead schedule, prepared by Contractor, for such Month N and Month N+1 that shows, among other requirements, Contractor’s schedule for (i) completing such Milestones in Month N+1 and (ii) incurring such allowable costs and expenses for time and materials Change Orders and Provisional Sums during such Month N+1. All Invoices, other than the Invoice for final payment under this Agreement, shall be in the form of Schedule I-1.

  E. Review and Payment. Each Invoice shall be reviewed by Owner and, upon Owner’s reasonable request, Contractor shall furnish such supporting documentation and certificates and provide such further information as may be reasonably requested by Owner. Within thirty (30) Days after receipt of any Invoice, Owner shall provide notice to Contractor of any disputed amount set forth in such Invoice, including an explanation of why such amount is disputed. Unless so disputed by Owner, each Invoice (less any withholdings allowed under this Agreement) shall be due and paid no later than thirty (30) Days after it, and all applicable documentation required under this Agreement, including Attachment I, is received by Owner. If an Invoice is disputed by Owner, then payment shall be made within the thirty (30) Day period for all undisputed amounts and the dispute shall be resolved pursuant to Article 18. Payment on disputed amounts shall be made as soon as such dispute is resolved. Without limiting the foregoing, Owner shall not be required to pay, and shall be entitled to withhold payment from Contractor for any amounts otherwise due Contractor, for:

  1. any amounts for (i) Milestones Invoiced in Month N-2 that Contractor did not complete during Month N-1, (ii) Milestones Invoiced in Month N-1 that Contractor did not complete in Month N, (iii) Milestones Invoiced in Month N that Contractor did not complete prior to payment by Owner or is not projected (in accordance with the current sixty (60) Day look-ahead schedule) to complete in Month N+1;

  7.3 Final Completion and Final Payment. Upon Final Completion, Contractor shall, in addition to any other requirements in this Agreement for achieving Final Completion, including those requirements set forth in Section 1.1 for the definition of Final Completion, submit a fully executed final Invoice in the form attached hereto as Schedule I-2, along with (i) a statement summarizing and reconciling all previous Invoices, payments and Change Orders; (ii) an affidavit that all payrolls, Taxes, bills for Equipment, and any other indebtedness connected with the Work for which Contractor and its Subcontractors and Sub-subcontractors are liable (excluding Corrective Work) have been paid; (iii) fully executed Final Conditional Lien and Claim Waiver from Contractor in the form of Schedule K-5, (iv) fully executed Final Conditional Lien and Claim Waivers from each Major Subcontractor in the form set forth in Schedule K-7; and (v) fully executed Final Conditional Lien and Claim Waivers from each Major Sub-subcontractor in substantially the form set forth in Schedule K-7.

  7.4 Payments Not Acceptance of Work. No payment made hereunder by Owner shall be considered as approval or acceptance of any Work by Owner or a waiver of any claim or right Owner may have hereunder. All payments shall be subject to correction in subsequent payments.

  7.5 Payments Withheld. In addition to disputed amounts set forth in an Invoice, Owner may, in addition to any other rights under this Agreement, and upon giving Contractor ten (10) Days’ prior written notice referenced in Section 7.8, withhold payment on an Invoice or a portion thereof, or collect on the Letter of Credit, in an amount and to such extent as may be reasonably necessary to protect Owner from loss due to:

公司新闻相关问答
问:是否提供上门翻译服务?
答:对于口译项目,一定可以。对于笔译项目,我们建议客户不采用这样的方式。因为翻译工作是一项需要团队合作的工作,我们有许多保密性很强的专业词汇库和语料库不能带出公司,因此,译员上门翻译,效果不一定是最好的,且会收取一定的上门服务费。但客户实在需要,我们一定会配合。
问:你们翻译公司以前做过生物翻译没有?
答:我们的生物翻译人员全都是有这行背景出身的,一是跟生物医药研发生产企业以及机构的翻译合作,主要是生物研究、相关产品的高标准翻译,二是之前在相关研究机构工作多年的。 另外我们还为生物方面的科研人士提供论文发表翻译,有资深的母语译员校对文稿。
问:为何每家翻译公司的报价不一样?
答:大家都知道一分价格一分货,在翻译行业里更为突出,译员的水平是划分等级的。新开的翻译公司或不具备翻译资质的公司为了抢占市场,恶意搅乱,以次充好,低价吸引客户。
问:为什么以“字符数(不计空格)”为统计标准而不是“字数”或者“中文字符和朝鲜语单词”?
答:以“字符数(不计空格)”已经普遍成为翻译行业字数统计的标准。在进行文章的字数统计之前,我们建议客户或者自动删去不必要进入统计的英文字符。剩下的汉字部分,包括标点符号和上下标都需要进入字数统计。因为我们处理的文章作为整体,标点符号是可以决定句子意思的元素,也就是说我们同样将标点符号的意思考虑进译文中了。化学式,数学公式上下标细节我们也都会考虑,并负责耐心的在译文中准确的书写,而处理这样的符号丝毫不比翻译更节省时间。我们建议作者将不需要翻译的内容包括符号尽可能删去,这样将使得字数统计更加合理。
问:翻译要花多少钱?
答:翻译的价格高低差别很大。虽然高价格不一定意味着高质量,我们的忠告是:如果价格低于一定标准,您得到的译文将很难提升贵公司或产品的形象。如果译者的报酬比钟点工高不了多少,他们怎么会关注贵公司的市场并与您休戚与共呢?要实事求是。
问:需要与你们公司什么人接洽翻译业务呢?
答:我们公司采取专属客服服务模式。为企业客户配备专属客服,一对一沟通具体翻译需求,组建专属译员团队。
问:一名译者一小时能翻译几页稿子?
答:在选择翻译服务提供商的时候,请先想一想您在开发国际市场的产品和服务方面投入的费用。如果您觉得难以承受聘请专业翻译服务的费用,这说明您可能还未做好进军国际市场的准备。
问:为什么百度上面的翻译公司报价很低?
答:百度里面的翻译公司好多无实体办公室、无营业执照、无翻译人员、无本经营,以低价吸引客户。
问:如果翻译的稿件只有几百字,如何收费?
答:对于不足一千字的稿件,目前有两种收费标准: 1)不足一千字按一千字计算。 2)对于身份证、户口本、驾驶证、营业执照、公证材料等特殊稿件按页计费。
问:您期望他或她花多少时间来用心翻译贵公司产品和服务的宣传材料?
答:翻译公司提供的增值服务,例如:译者选拔、项目管理、质量控制、文件转换、多语种项目演示的标准化等也会产生费用,但是却可以节省您大量的时间。
