A PECS Experiment Arrangement change procedure shall apply at least to any modifications
of the Agency’s financial commitment (Articles 2 or/and 5 of the Arrangement)
and of the Term (Article 3 of the Arrangement).
1. INTRODUCTION OF A CHANGE
For all changes, whether requested by the Agency or initiated by the Institute,
the latter shall submit a proposal for a PECS Experiment Arrangement Change
Notice (ACN) on the form attached hereto. The ACN shall be filled in completely,
and boxes or lines that are not applicable shall be so designated by use of
the letters "NA". The form shall be signed by the Institute’s
authorised representative(s) and be submitted to the Agency's representative
for contractual and administrative matters.
The Institute shall ensure that each change proposal is fully co-ordinated
with Appendices 1 and 2 to the arrangement and that all reasonably foreseeable
implications of the change have been considered. If the space on the form is
not sufficient to describe the change and its consequences, the additional information
shall be annexed to the form. The Institute shall, on request of the Agency,
provide additional documentary evidence.
2. APPROVAL OR REJECTION OF THE ARRANGEMENT CHANGE NOTICES
Upon receipt of an ACN signed by the Institute the Agency shall consider it
as regards its acceptability. Should the ACN be approved, it will be signed
by the ESA PECS Office’s authorised representative and a copy be returned
to the Institute. Should a ACN be rejected for any reason, the Institute shall
be informed accordingly, together with the reasons for the rejection.
3. IMPLEMENTATION AND STATUS OF APPROVED ARRANGEMENT CHANGE NOTICES
Upon signature of a ACN by both parties, the ACN has immediate effect and constitutes
a binding contractual agreement.
