Procurement disputes are disagreements that arise between a buyer and seller over the terms of a contract. These disputes can involve any type of purchase agreement, including sales contracts, service contracts, public procurement contracts, and construction agreements. Such disputes often involve allegations of improper pricing or payment arrangements, failure to properly deliver goods or services as agreed upon, and breach of the duty to act in good faith when negotiating a contract.
In cases where parties do not reach an agreement on their own, some form of dispute resolution is generally required in order to move forward. Dispute resolution may involve litigation or arbitration with the assistance of a court or third-party adjudication process. The terms of resolution are often determined by existing laws and regulations governing contracts in that particular jurisdiction.
In many cases, mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) may be utilized to help facilitate an agreement between the parties outside of courtrooms or arbitration offices. The use of ADR helps to reduce costs associated with litigation while still allowing for the timely resolution of disputes. Additionally, using an experienced mediator can allow parties to create informed solutions tailored specifically to their situation that may not otherwise be achievable through court rulings or arbitration orders.
No matter how complex the dispute may seem, it is always important for all parties involved to remain focused on what they hope to gain from resolving this particular disagreement and working together towards finding a solution that is mutually beneficial.
