Complaints and disputes
If a dispute arises, then both purchaser and the supplier are obligated to use their best efforts to resolve the dispute.
The purchaser should attempt to resolve the matter through discussions with the supplier’s customer service representative. However, if the parties to the dispute are unable to resolve the matter then the purchaser should contact NSW Procurement.
If the matter cannot be resolved by mutual agreement of both parties in consultation with NSW Procurement, the matter will be resolved in accordance with the dispute resolution process outlined in the 'Dispute schedule' of the agreement. This will require a higher level of detailed documentation, correspondence and records.
