I am a CPV member and want to negotiate additional Terms & Conditions. Can I negotiate directly with the Contract Vendor on these?
ANSWER 17: No. Call the AMS* assigned to this contract to discuss concerns with the Terms & Conditions. Only the State can negotiate the Terms & Conditions of the contract. QUESTION 18: Am I taxed on maintenance? ANSWER18: No. The Contract vendor must bill maintenance as a separate line on the invoice separately from the purchase or the rental. Per Minnesota Sales Tax Fact Sheet #109 the service provider must pay sales or use tax on the cost of all parts and materials used under the maintenance contract.
