They claim that warranties should be limited to only what is offered in a basic supplier contract and dollar amounts should not exceed the price of the contract. Well, Scott Thomas (Technology Contracts Manager, Humana) and Robert Wright (Senior Technology Contracts Manager, Humana) are coming into town letting folks know that “industry standard” is simply not good enough. And some customers are getting far better deals than the industry standard.

CAUCUS The Association of IT Acquisition Professionals is fortunate enough to have Scott and Robert headline their Regional Workshop on April 24 from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The class will cover software licensing proven tips and strategies for contracts related to advanced cloud services.

In 1994, International Computer Negotiations (ICN) formed CAUCUS – The Association of IT Acquisition Professionals, establishing the only member-based association serving the specialized needs of technology acquisition professionals. To start the organization, ICN re-branded some of its best events and its popular ICNnet bulletin board under the CAUCUS name.
