  2.0 General Purchasing Provisions

 

  2.1 GPO Laws and Regulations. HPG represents and Vendor recognizes that HPG is a group purchasing organization. The Parties acknowledge that it is their intent to establish a business relationship in which payments by Vendor to HPG and Purchasers comply with the exceptions to the Medicare and Medicaid Anti-Kickback statute set forth at 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7b(b)(3) (A) and (C), the “safe harbor” regulations regarding discounts set forth in 42 C.F.R. § 1001.952(h), and the “safe harbor” regulations regarding payments to group purchasing organizations set forth in 42 C.F.R. § 1001.952(j); and the Parties believe that the relationship contemplated by this Agreement is in compliance with those requirements.

 

  2.2 Award Basis. HPG and Vendor hereby agree that they are entering into this Agreement pursuant to the award basis designated in Exhibit B to this Agreement.

 

  2.3 Eligible Purchasers. Commencing on the Effective Date, all Participants located in the United States or its territories shall be eligible to obtain Products and/or Services from Vendor under this Agreement, including but not limited to acute care facilities, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, imaging centers, alternate site entities, physician practices, rehabilitation facilities, psychiatric centers, clinics or any other kind of healthcare providers, as well as any Participant distribution centers qualifying as a Participant and servicing other Participants and Purchasers. In addition to being able to obtain Products from Vendor pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, Purchasers shall be able to obtain Products from Vendor pursuant to the terms of the Facility Agreement. HPG shall update its list of eligible Purchasers on HPG’s secured website for its vendors twice monthly. Vendor agrees to check the updated list, located at:

https://scrubs.healthtrustpg.com/Source/vendors/mm_listings/mm_vendor.xls

within five (5) business days following the 7th and the 21st of each month, and to update its list of eligible Purchasers within such 5-day period to accurately reflect the name, address, GPOID, and any other assigned identification code for each eligible Purchaser. Purchasers obtaining Products and/or Services from Vendor under this Agreement shall be considered third party beneficiaries hereunder. In the event Vendor’s records show that a Purchaser is listed as a member of another GPO in addition to HPG, Vendor shall notify HPG and HPG will contact the Purchaser and obtain appropriate documentation from the Purchaser that indicates HPG is such Purchaser’s exclusive GPO for the product category that covers Products available hereunder. Until such documentation is furnished, Vendor shall withhold payment of fees to any GPO for purchases by the

 

Page 5 of 32


Purchaser in question, and upon presentation of the appropriate documentation, Vendor shall pay the withheld GPO Fees as appropriate.

 

  2.4 Purchaser Obligations. Payment for purchases made by Purchasers under this Agreement shall be the sole responsibility of the Purchaser, and Vendor agrees that HPG shall have no responsibility or obligation for such payments or any other obligations of Purchasers under this Agreement.

 

  2.5 Direct Purchases. If purchases are to be directly from the Vendor, as noted in Exhibit B, then upon receipt of an order from Purchaser (regardless of form or media used, or whether reference is made to this Agreement) Vendor agrees to sell and deliver to Purchaser the Products and/or Services listed in the order at the prices set forth in Exhibit A (including any discounts or rebates stated in Exhibit A), subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement. No minimum quantity or dollar amount shall apply to any order unless expressly stated in Exhibit B to this Agreement. In the event Vendor charges a Purchaser a price higher than that stated in Exhibit A, upon discovery of such overcharge and payment thereof by the Purchaser, Vendor shall issue Purchaser a refund (not a credit) in the amount of such overcharge/over payment. If Vendor charges a Purchaser a price lower than that stated in Exhibit A, Vendor shall have the right to set-off the undercharge against any refund due for an overcharge/over payment. Vendor agrees that it will not refuse to honor any credit balance or refund obligation for any Purchaser based on such Purchaser’s non-payment or short payment of an invoice on an unrelated purchase where the amount owed is not in dispute. No Purchaser may refuse to honor any payment obligation to Vendor based on an unrelated purchase by such Purchaser where the amount owed is not in dispute or by any other Purchaser. Vendor shall provide regular statements (at least quarterly) to Purchasers which list unapplied credits, and upon a Purchaser request, shall promptly refund the amount of the unapplied credits.

 

  2.6 Purchases Through Distributors. If any Product is available through a Distributor, as designated in Exhibit B, then the terms and conditions of this Agreement which apply to shipment directly from Vendor to a Purchaser shall not be applicable to purchases of such Products through a Distributor; and unless otherwise designated herein, the prices listed in Exhibit A shall be the prices Vendor charges the Distributor, with the ultimate price paid by Purchaser determined by HPG and the Distributor. Vendor shall provide Product pricing and related information to HPG and Distributors, which is consistent with Exhibit A, any amendments to Exhibit A, and corresponding pricing files for EDI and Internet e-commerce transactions. Otherwise, with respect to purchases of Products through Distributors, all other terms and conditions of this Agreement shall apply to each purchase transaction by a Purchaser. Vendor shall assume total responsibility for obtaining from Distributors purchase information for each Purchaser so that Vendors accurately pay and report on GPO fees and rebates (if any).

 

  2.7

Term. Subject to the termination provisions of Section 16, this Agreement shall have a Term commencing on the Effective Date and expiring on the Expiration Date specified in Exhibit B to this Agreement, with the obligation of Vendor to first make Products and/or Services available hereunder beginning as of the Effective Date. Except as otherwise provided herein, the provisions of this Agreement, including prices, shall be

 

Page 6 of 32


 

effective from the Effective Date through the Expiration Date. If Products and/or Services by Purchaser after the Effective Date are provided by Vendor at a price higher than that provided by this Agreement, then Vendor shall issue refunds for all purchases of Products and/or Services, such that the net purchase price will equal that stated in this Agreement. Prices for Products and/or Services may not be increased except pursuant to a written amendment to this Agreement that has been signed by both Parties, except as otherwise expressly stated in Section 20.3 or Exhibit B.

 

  2.8 Independent Contractor Relationship. The Parties agree that Vendor is an independent contractor and that this Agreement does not create any agency, employment, or joint venture relationship, or any right of either Party to obligate the other Party to any legal or financial obligation.

 

  2.9 Capital Investments. Vendor assumes the full and complete risk of any capital investments Vendor makes to enable or enhance its capabilities to serve HPG and to provide Products and Services to Purchasers under this Agreement. In no event will HPG, any Participant, or any Purchaser assume any financial or other risk associated with capital investments made by Vendor as a result of or related to this Agreement.

 

  2.10 Orders. The terms set forth in this Agreement shall apply to each order by a Purchaser, whether such order is communicated by Purchaser’s purchase order form, EDI, internet e-commerce, facsimile, orally, or any other method, or whether reference is made to this Agreement.

 

  2.11 Multiple Product Purchasing Arrangements. The parties acknowledge that vital signs monitoring products such as pulse oximeters may be considered as Clinical Preference Products as defined in the HIGPA Code of Conduct adopted July 24, 2002.

 

  3.0 GPO Fees, Rebates, Reporting, Prices, Payments

 

  3.1

GPO Fees. In consideration for the administrative and other services HPG shall perform in connection with purchases of Products and Services under this Agreement by Purchasers, Vendor agrees to pay HPG GPO fees as provided in Exhibit B to this Agreement (“GPO Fees”) for all purchases of Products and Services under this Agreement, whether such purchases are made directly from Vendor or through a Distributor, or whether such purchases are made at prices other than those stated in Exhibit A. If a percentage is listed in Exhibit B for the GPO Fee, the percentage shall be applied against the net dollar volume of purchases (excluding any added freight charges) of Products and Services by Purchasers during the applicable time period (i.e., total sales less refunds and credits on returns, rebates and discounts). The payment of such GPO Fees is intended to be in compliance with the exception to the Medicare and Medicaid Anti-Kickback Statute set forth at 42 USC § 1320a-7b(b)(3)(C) and the “safe harbor” regulations set forth in 42 C.F.R. § 1001.952(j). The GPO Fees for purchases under this Agreement during each calendar quarter during the Term shall be paid by Vendor to HPG within thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar quarter. However, information on sales through distributors may be substantially delayed due to the distributors’ delay in providing timely sales information. Vendor shall provide

 

Page 7 of 32


 

electronic reports with each GPO Fee payment that accurately list purchases upon which GPO Fees are based by each Purchaser for the applicable quarter and any other information that may be required to enable HPG to comply with 42 C.F.R. § 1001.952(j). Electronic reports shall be in a format and have content that is mutually acceptable by HPG and Vendor.

 

  3.2 Rebates. If any rebates are to be paid under this Agreement, Vendor agrees to pay rebates based on purchases of Products and/or Services by Purchasers in the amounts stated in Exhibit A to this Agreement. If a percentage is stated for the rebate, then the rebate shall be determined by multiplying the stated percentage against the dollar amount actually paid by the Purchaser (excluding any added taxes, duties, freight, packaging and insurance charges) for Products and Services purchased hereunder. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Vendor and the Participant/Purchaser (in which event Vendor shall disclose the existence and amounts of such rebates to HPG), rebates shall be payable directly to HPG for payment to Participants/Purchasers, shall be based on purchases by Purchasers under this Agreement made during each calendar quarter during the Term, and shall be paid within thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar quarter. The payment of rebates is intended to be in compliance with the exception to the Medicaid and Medicare Anti-Kickback Statute set for at 42 U.S.C.A. §1320a-7b(b)(3)(A) and the “safe harbor” regulations set forth in 42 CFR §1001.952(h). For rebate payments made directly to HPG, Vendor shall provide electronic reports with each rebate payment that contain sufficient detail to permit HPG to accurately allocate the appropriate amounts to each Participant/Purchaser. For rebate payments made directly to Participants/Purchasers, Vendor shall provide electronic reports with each rebate payment that contain sufficient detail to permit the Participant/Purchaser to accurately account for the rebates on its accounting records and its cost reports under any government healthcare plan, and provide a copy of such report to HPG at the time payment is made to the Participant/Purchaser.

 

  3.3 Vendor Reports. The Vendor reports submitted pursuant to Sections 3.1 and 3.2 shall include a listing of each Purchaser by the Purchaser “GPOID” number supplied with HPG’s list of eligible Purchasers. If Vendor uses its own customer identification number, then Vendor shall also provide the GPOID for each Purchaser. The Vendor reports shall be sent by e-mail to:

vendorbackup@healthtrustpg.com

If Vendor does not have internet access, then Vendor shall save the required reports on diskettes or compact disks and send them to HPG along with the GPO Fee and rebate payments to the address listed in Section 3.6.

 

  3.4 Prompt Payment Acknowledgement. Vendor acknowledges that failure to promptly pay rebates and GPO Fees, or to submit accurate reports will delay HPG’s payment and/or reporting of rebates and/or GPO Fees to Participants and Purchasers, thereby potentially causing Participants and Purchasers to be unable to accurately complete cost reports required under United States government reimbursed healthcare programs.

 

Page 8 of 32


  3.5 Payment Terms and Late Fees. HPG shall have the right to charge, and Vendor agrees to pay, a late fee equal to one percent (1%) per month (or the maximum allowed by law, whichever is less) of the amount of any GPO Fees, rebates, or other fees not paid by Vendor in accordance with the payment terms stated herein or, if not otherwise stated herein, within thirty (30) days from receipt of an invoice therefor and that remain unpaid for ten (10) days after HPG provides written notice of delinquency. Timely payment without the required reports shall be considered as non-payment until reports meeting the above requirements have been delivered to HPG.

 

  3.6 Addresses for Payments. GPO Fees and Rebates shall be sent to HPG as follows:

  5.0 Price Warranty

 

  5.1 Comparable Customers. Vendor represents and warrants that the prices charged for the Products and/or Services purchased hereunder, net of all discounts and rebates, do not exceed Vendor’s net prices for the particular Products and/or Services charged to others who are the same class of customer as are Purchasers and who purchase under substantially similar contract terms and purchase volume commitments.

 

  5.2 Price Decreases. If Vendor offers any price decreases for Products and/or Services to a substantial number of its customers during the Term, Vendor agrees to notify HPG of such price decreases and make such decreases available to similarly situated Purchasers immediately and in like amounts.

 

  6.0 State Sales or Use Taxes

 

  6.1 Tax Collection. Vendor shall be registered in all taxing jurisdictions where it is legally required to register. Any federal, state, or local sales, use, excise, or other similar tax imposed on Vendor by virtue of this Agreement or the Products and/or Services provided by Vendor hereunder, or any such taxes imposed on Purchaser, shall be collected from Purchaser by Vendor, and paid to the appropriate taxing jurisdiction by Vendor. Each invoice to Purchaser shall clearly and separately state the amount of such tax. Vendor shall promptly refund to Purchasers in cash, any over-charges of taxes collected by Vendor from Purchasers.

 

  6.2 Tax Reconciliation. Upon request, Vendor shall provide reasonable assistance to HPG and each Purchaser to provide data and information in Vendor’s possession to assist Purchaser’s reconciliation of its item files to Vendor’s files with regard to tax rates and taxability of Products and/or Services, including the provision of the following information to the extent Vendor tracks and has actual knowledge of such information:

 

  (1) Is the product or package labeled in a manner that indicates it’s available only with a physician’s prescription (i.e., is it a federal legend item)?

  6.3 Tax Information. Vendor shall furnish to HPG and each Purchaser, upon request, a copy of Vendor’s registration certificate and number within each taxing jurisdiction prior to collecting such sales or use taxes. If a purchase is tax-exempt, such Purchaser shall, prior to purchase, furnish Vendor with any documents necessary to demonstrate its tax-exempt status. Vendor shall also provide to each Purchaser, upon request, Vendor’s Federal Tax Identification number.

 

  7.0 Vendor Delivery Performance; Customer Service

 

  7.1 Delivery Performance Warranty. Vendor represents and warrants to HPG and Purchasers that it shall make commercially reasonable efforts to maintain in inventory at appropriate locations sufficient quantities of each Product and shall both choose a transportation mode and carrier and provide said carrier with appropriate instructions to ensure that any Purchaser ordering Products will receive delivery within seven (7) business days after the date the order is received by Vendor (except for build-to-order products) unless a different delivery schedule is stated in Exhibit A or B, in which case the stated delivery schedule time period in Exhibit A or B shall apply to this warranty. This delivery performance warranty shall become effective with respect to each such Product thirty (30) calendar days from the Effective Date of this Agreement, if such Product is listed in Exhibit A, or from the date such Product is later added to Exhibit A of this Agreement.

 

  7.2 Delivery Failures. If Vendor anticipates that it will not be able to deliver any particular Product ordered by any Purchaser within the later of (i) seven (7) business days following either the date of receipt of the order (or within the delivery schedule of Exhibit A or B, if applicable); or (ii) the date of delivery stated in the order, Vendor shall immediately notify the Purchaser and work with the Purchaser to resolve the supply issue to Purchaser’s satisfaction. This resolution may include assistance in the identification and location of an acceptable substitute at the same or lower pricing as the unavailable Product. Vendor shall be responsible for paying additional costs for any expedited shipment of Products required to meet the delivery obligations stated in this Agreement. However, Purchaser shall be required to pay any additional freight charges for any shipment where Purchaser requests a delivery period shorter than that stated in this Agreement. Payment of such additional shipping charges shall be in accordance with the freight payment terms of Exhibit B.

 

Page 11 of 32


  7.3 Remedies for Delivery Failures. If Vendor is unable to ship Product or provide Services within the time periods specified in this Agreement or applicable order, Purchaser shall have the right to either cancel the order, in whole or part, to accept alternative delivery dates, or to order a replacement from another source, in addition to any other rights of Purchaser arising under this Agreement or by law. If Vendor backorders Products for any order or portion thereof which it is unable to ship for delivery within the required time period, Vendor shall notify the Purchaser and Purchaser the option of canceling the order with respect to the backordered Products.

 

  7.4 Intentionally Omitted.

 

  7.5 No Breach of Award. Neither Purchaser nor HPG shall be deemed to be in breach of any Sole Source Award or Dual Source Award terms of this Agreement (if any) as a result of the purchase of replacements for Product that Vendor is unable to provide as required by the terms of this Agreement.

 

  7.6 Vendor Support. Vendor shall provide customer service support staff for receipt of telephone calls, e-mails and facsimiles from Purchasers and HPG for the purpose of resolving issues related to transactions under this Agreement. Vendor’s service representatives shall be available between 6:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Pacific time, Monday through Friday, except for holidays.

Freight charges shall be for the net charge by the carrier and shall not include any up-charges.

 

  8.2 Packaging. Vendor assumes all responsibility for proper packaging of Products for safe shipment to Purchaser, in accordance with both the packing and shipping regulations of the transportation service provider, and also, if applicable, the packaging, marking, labeling and shipping paper requirements of the United States Department of Transportation’s Hazardous Material Regulations.

 

  8.3 Risk of Loss. Products shall be shipped on an F.O.B. origin basis, with title and risk of loss or damage passing to the ordering Purchaser upon Vendor’s delivery of the Products to the carrier. In the event of a damaged, lost or missing shipment, Vendor shall, at Purchaser’s request and discretion, and at no cost to the Purchaser, submit a claim on behalf of the Purchaser with the carrier, and ensure the claim is resolved to Purchaser’s reasonable satisfaction.

 

  8.4 Shipping and Handling. Except as set forth in Exhibit B, no “Handling” or “Shipping and Handling” charges shall be added to any invoice, and Purchasers shall have no obligation to pay “Handling” or “Shipping and Handling” charges for purchases under this Agreement.

  12.3 HIPAA Requirements. Vendor acknowledges that many Purchasers are “covered entities” as that term is defined at 45 C.F.R. § 160.103. Vendor agrees to comply with the Administrative Simplification Provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as codified at 42 U.S.C. § 1320d et seq.

Vendor grants to Purchaser a non-exclusive, non-transferable, perpetual license to use the Software and Intellectual Property in connection with its use of the Products. This Agreement does not constitute a sale of the Software or any Intellectual Property. The Purchaser may not reverse engineer, copy, modify, loan, rent, lease, assign, transfer, or sub-license the Software or Intellectual Property without Vendor’s prior written consent, which may be withheld at Vendor’s sole discretion; any attempt to do so will render the license null and void and the right to use the Software and Intellectual Property invalid.

In such event, the text of any proposed announcements should be first submitted in writing to: Vice-President, National Agreements, HealthTrust Purchasing Group, 155 Franklin Road, Suite 400, Brentwood, TN 37027. Any violation of this provision shall be considered a material breach of this Agreement, conferring on HPG the right to terminate this Agreement immediately without any right of Vendor to cure such breach.

 

  14.0 Insurance

During the Term, Vendor shall maintain at its own expense commercial general liability insurance for bodily injury, death and property loss and damage (including coverages for product liability, completed operations, contractual liability and personal injury liability) covering Vendor for claims, lawsuits or damages arising out of its performance under this Agreement, and any negligent or otherwise wrongful acts or omissions by Vendor or any employee or agent of Vendor, with HPG and Purchasers listed as additional insureds. All such policies of insurance may be provided on either an occurrence or claims-made basis, and shall provide limits of liability in the minimum amount of five million dollars ($5,000,000) per claimant (“claimant” is defined as the injured person, his/her spouse, and children, if any) with an annual aggregate of ten million dollars ($10,000,000).

HPG shall have the right, during normal business hours and with reasonable advance notice, to review Vendor’s books, documents and records (whether in hard copy, electronic or other form) that reasonably pertain directly to the accounts of HPG, Participants, Purchasers, and their Affiliates, their compliance with the terms of this Agreement, the amounts payable to Vendor under this Agreement, and the GPO Fees and rebates payable by Vendor for the Products and Services provided by Vendor hereunder. HPG may conduct no more than one such audit in any 12 month period. The audit shall be conducted by employees of HPG or its Affiliates (including contract employees) or by an external auditing firm selected by HPG and approved by Vendor which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. The auditors shall not use or disclose (either externally or within HPG), any audit materials provided by Vendor hereunder except as needed for purposes of the audit. All such auditors shall sign Vendor’s confidentiality agreement before accessing confidential information, which agreement shall have terms comparable to those in this paragraph and in Section 12 of this Agreement. The Parties agree that the methodology for such audit may include sampling and extrapolation in accordance with standard statistical estimations. In connection with any such audit, Vendor shall provide an aging report, as well as a report containing the following data fields: GPOID, COID, Customer Number, Facility/Customer Name, Street Address, City, State, Invoice Date, Invoice Number, PO Number, HPG Contract Number, Internal Vendor Contract ID Number, Contract Name and Description, Product/Item Number, Product/Item Description, Unit of Measure, Quantity Shipped, Unit Price, and Extended Price, solely to the extent that such information is maintained in Vendor’s order entry system and, in the case of distributor transactions, to the extent such information is provided to Vendor by its distributors. At the request of HPG, the requested records shall be provided to HPG in electronic form at the offices of HPG or HPG’s auditor. The cost of audit, including the cost of the auditors and reasonable cost of copies of books, documents, and records shall be paid by HPG. HPG shall have no obligation to pay any other costs incurred by Vendor, its employees or agents in cooperating with HPG in such audit. Upon completion of the audit, Vendor will be notified in writing of the results (an “Audit Report”) within thirty (30) days. If an audit determines that Vendor has significantly underpaid HPG or any Purchaser based on statistical methodology, or if Vendor desires to challenge the findings, Vendor’s sole option shall be to conduct its own audit of all applicable transactions and to share such findings and supporting detail with HPG and its auditors. If no response to the Audit Report is received from Vendor within thirty (30) days

following its issuance, the Audit Report shall be deemed accepted by Vendor. The Audit Report shall be distributed to HPG Participants, and HPG will issue Vendor an invoice for any amounts due. Vendor shall pay to HPG for proper application and allocation, the amount of any overcharges and unapplied credits (as to Purchasers) and underpayments (as to HPG) determined by the audit within thirty (30) days from receipt of invoice from HPG, and not use the overcharges or underpayments as a set-off in any fashion. If an audit reveals that Vendor has overpaid GPO Fees to HPG, Vendor may obtain refunds of such overpayments or apply the balance of such overpayment to future GPO Fees payable to HPG on sales to all Purchasers. If an audit reveals that Vendor has undercharged any Purchaser (or overpaid any rebate), then Vendor reserves the right to supplementally invoice the Purchaser for such amounts or set-off such amounts against any over charges or rebates for any Purchaser within thirty (30) days of the Purchaser transactions in question. Payment by Purchasers of mutually negotiated prices less than those listed for Products in Exhibit A shall not be considered to be an undercharge and shall not be applied to reduce the amount of any overcharges by Vendor. The Parties agree to use good faith efforts to resolve any disputes arising from any Audit Report issued pursuant to this Section 17.4. In the event that HPG and Vendor enter into any settlement with respect to an audit conducted hereunder, each Purchaser shall have the right to be excluded from such settlement, provided that the pro rata portion of such settlement allocable to such Purchaser is refunded by HPG.

 

  17.5 Warranty of Non-Exclusion. Vendor represents and warrants to HPG, Purchasers and their Affiliates that Vendor and its directors, officers, and employees (i) are not currently excluded, debarred, or otherwise ineligible to participate in the Federal health care programs as defined in 42 USC § 1320a-7b(f) (the “Federal Healthcare Programs”); (ii) have not been convicted of a criminal offense related to the provision of healthcare items or services but have not yet been excluded, debarred, or otherwise declared ineligible to participate in the Federal Healthcare Programs; and (iii) are not under investigation or otherwise aware of any circumstances which may result in Vendor being excluded from participation in the Federal Healthcare Programs. These representations and warranties shall be ongoing during the Term and Vendor shall immediately notify HPG of any change in the status of the representations and warranties set forth in this Section 17.5. Any breach of this Section 17.5 shall give HPG the right to terminate this Agreement immediately.

 

  17.6 No Remuneration. Vendor represents and warrants to HPG and its Purchasers that it has not made, is not obligated to make, and will not make any payment or provide any remuneration to any third party in return for HPG entering into this Agreement or for any business transacted under this Agreement.

 

  17.7

Background Checks. Vendor agrees to perform background checks on any Vendor employees hired on or after the Effective Date who have access to, or may have access to, any Purchaser facility for the purpose of delivering, maintaining, servicing, or removing equipment and/or Products, to ensure such employees: (i) are not currently excluded, debarred or otherwise ineligible to participate in any Federal Healthcare Program; (ii) have not been convicted of a criminal offense related to the provision of healthcare items or services but have not yet been excluded; (iii) have not been convicted of any felony; or (iv) as discovered through any background check or based

 

Page 26 of 32


 

upon Vendor’s knowledge, have not been terminated from employment by any employer or contractor for theft, misappropriation of property, or any other potentially illegal or unethical acts. Vendor agrees not to use any employee or potential employee failing to meet the criteria in items (i) through (iv) above to provide Services to any Purchaser under this Agreement. Any breach of this Section 17.7 shall give HPG the right to terminate this Agreement immediately.

 

  18.0 Reports

In addition to the reporting obligations of Section 3.3, Vendor shall also be required to furnish to HPG the reports stated in Exhibit B.

 

  19.0 Assignment

Neither Party shall assign this Agreement in whole or in part, nor subcontract its obligations hereunder, without the prior written consent of the other Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Any assignment or subcontract without such prior consent shall be void and have no effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may assign, without obtaining consent from Vendor, in whole or in part, the Party’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (i) to any entity which is an Affiliate of the Party; and (ii) to a successor entity of the Party as part of an internal reorganization of the Party which results in the Party being organized in a different legal entity or corporate form, whether through conversion, merger, or otherwise. Subject to the foregoing, all terms, conditions, covenants and Agreements contained herein shall inure to the benefit of, and be binding upon, any successor and any permitted assignees of the respective Parties hereto. It is further understood and agreed that consent by either Party to such assignment in one instance shall not constitute consent by the Party to any other assignment. Notwithstanding anything else herein to the contrary, some or all of Vendor’s rights under any Purchaser agreement may be assigned to an Affiliate or to a successor in interest resulting from a merger or acquisition, or transferred to a third party for purposes of financing, provided Vendor remains secondarily liable for its obligations under this Agreement.

 

  20.0 Merger of Terms and Amendments

 

  20.1 Entire Agreement; Prior Agreement; Amendments. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties and as of the Effective Date, this Agreement terminates and replaces any existing agreement between HPG and Vendor (the “Prior Agreement”) for purchases of products and services comparable to Products and Services by Purchaser. This Agreement shall exclusively govern the purchases of Products and/or Services that occur following the Effective Date. The provisions of any Prior Agreement shall continue to apply to the products and services purchased thereunder prior to the Effective Date of this Agreement, and such Prior Agreements shall continue in full force and effect in accordance with their terms with respect to purchases made thereunder. This Agreement, as executed and approved, shall not be modified except by written amendment, expressly stating an intent to modify the terms of this Agreement, and signed by the Parties hereto.

 

  20.2

Conflicts. In the event of any conflict between the terms herein and the terms of any Exhibit hereto, the priority for control, from first to last priority, shall be Exhibit B,

 

Page 27 of 32


 

Exhibit A, any other Exhibit, and then the terms herein. The terms of this Agreement shall take priority over any conflicting terms contained in any Vendor Product warranty, whether referenced herein, attached to this Agreement, included with any Product sold by Vendor, or included as part of a facility agreement between Vendor and a Purchaser.

 

  20.3 Exhibit A Revisions. Vendor reserves the right to delete Products shown on Exhibit A at any time, effective on sixty (60) days prior written notice, only if Vendor is discontinuing its sales of such Product. Prices for Products are firm for the length of the Term. Any price increases shall be subject to prior written approval by HPG in its sole discretion. Vendor shall provide a Form 832 for all Exhibit A revisions at the time of notice to HPG

 

  20.4 Exhibit E. Exhibit E attached to this Agreement is a summary for use by HPG in communicating the business terms of this Agreement to Participants and Purchasers. The Parties agree that the content of Exhibit E shall have no legal effect and is only for informational purposes.

 

  21.0 Partial Invalidity

In the event that any provision of this Agreement should for any reason be held invalid, unenforceable or contrary to public policy, the remainder of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding.

 

  22.0 Other Documents

The terms of any purchase order issued by a Purchaser shall not apply to purchases of Products and Services hereunder, except as necessary to designate specific Products and Services, quantities, delivery dates, and other similar terms that may vary from order to order; and the terms of this Agreement, to the extent applicable, shall be deemed incorporated in such purchase orders. The terms and conditions contained in any invoice, bill of lading, or other documents supplied by Vendor are expressly rejected and superseded by this Agreement and shall not be included in any contract with a Purchaser. No letter of commitment, Standardization Incentive Program Acknowledgement, or any other document shall be required by Vendor to be signed by a Purchaser in order to purchase Products and/or Services under this Agreement, unless expressly stated herein or later approved in writing by HPG.

 

  23.0 Personal Inducements

No personal cash, merchandise, equipment or other items of intrinsic value shall be offered by or on behalf of Vendor to HPG or Purchasers and/or their employees, officers, or directors as an inducement to purchase from Vendor.

 

  24.0 Vendor Relations Policy

Vendor acknowledges that HPG has a Vendor Relations Policy relating to ethics and compliance issues between suppliers and HPG, and that it has received a copy of this policy. The Vendor Relations Policy is also available through the internet at:

 

Page 28 of 32


http://www.healthtrustcorp.com/about-vendor-ethics.php

If Vendor becomes aware of any actions by any HPG employee or representative, which are not consistent with the provisions of Section 23 or of the Vendor Relations Policy referenced above, Vendor shall so advise the Compliance Officer for HPG (either by phone to 615-344-3037, or in writing to HPG’s principal place of business) or by calling the Ethics Hotline at 1-800-345-7419. Vendor agrees to notify any Purchasers or potential Purchasers of any possible conflict of interest between employees and representatives of Vendor selling Products and any Purchasers or their employees or representatives possibly involved in the purchasing decision process.

 

  25.0 Controlling Law

The performance of Vendor and HPG under this Agreement shall be controlled and governed by the laws of the State of Tennessee, excluding conflicts of law provisions.

 

  26.0 Legal Fees

In the event of any litigation between Vendor, Purchaser or HPG, that relates to this Agreement, the prevailing party shall recover from the other party its own costs, expenses and legal fees (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees and expert witness’ fees).

 

  27.0 Product Bar Coding

All Products when sold shall be marked with an industry standard barcode for each unit of measure associated with each Product.

 

  28.0 Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises

 

  28.1 Policies. HPG and Vendor hereby acknowledge their respective corporate policies and practices to not only encourage, but to expand the participation of Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises (“MWBEs”) in their procurement processes and their desire to work together to encourage their use of MWBEs in fulfillment of the obligations under this Agreement. As used in this Agreement, MWBEs shall be defined to include any company certified as a minority or women owned business by the National Minority Supplier Development Council or any local affiliates thereof, or any Federal, National, State, Municipal, or Local agencies that certify minority and/or women owned businesses in accordance with PL. 95-507.

 

  28.2 Contracting with MWBEs. Vendor recognizes and acknowledges that in conjunction with HPG’s efforts to involve MWBEs in its contracting process that HPG may enter into purchasing agreements with MWBEs which will enable Participants and their Affiliates to purchase supplies and/or equipment comparable to those listed as Products under this Agreement. In such event, notwithstanding any other terms of this Agreement to the contrary, the Parties agree that, if HPG enters into any such agreement(s) with any MWBEs, such will not be deemed to be a breach of this Agreement by HPG, nor will any purchases by Participants or their Affiliates from MWBEs be deemed to be a breach of this Agreement.

  28.3 Reporting of MWBE Activity. At HPG’s request, Vendor shall, on a quarterly basis, identify and report in writing to HPG all MWBE activities in which it participates, specifically identifying such activities and purchases relating to Products and Services obtained under this Agreement. These reports shall be submitted using the format shown on Exhibit C of this Agreement. Quarterly reports shall be submitted even if there have been no MWBE dollars expended during the applicable reporting period. Vendor shall only report those activities related to goods and services necessary for, and directly related to, the fulfillment of Vendor’s obligations under this Agreement. Vendor shall identify in such reports any first and second tier MWBEs it or its subcontractors have used during the reporting period. The MWBE contact for Vendor shall be the person listed in Exhibit B. All quarterly reports shall be sent to:

  30.0 New Technology

The terms of this Section 30.0, New Technology, shall be applicable only to those Products and/or Services that are included in any Dual Source or Sole Source Award designated in Exhibit B. If, during the Term, new technology (more than an improvement or enhancement to an existing Product) for a Product covered by this Agreement becomes available from any source including Vendor, which (i) offers technological advancements; (ii) would improve clinical outcomes or patient care; or (iii) would streamline work processes, as compared to existing Products (hereinafter, “New Technology Product”), HPG shall have the right to evaluate and ultimately contract with another supplier so that HPG can offer to Participants New Technology Products. Vendor shall provide HPG with the first opportunity to purchase, at discounts comparable to those applicable to Products under this Agreement, New Technology Products offered by Vendor and not referenced in Exhibit A of this Agreement and shall notify

 

Page 30 of 32


HPG of such at least thirty (30) days prior to New Technology Products being made available for purchase. Vendor shall also meet with HPG to provide required product information to HPG and its clinical committees prior to the New Technology Product being made available to Purchasers for purchase. HPG shall offer Vendor equal consideration and review for potential supply commitments for New Technology Products on a Dual Source basis. In the event that HPG enters into any national or group agreement for Participants to purchase a New Technology Product on a Sole Source, Dual Source or Optional Source Award basis from a source other than Vendor or any Dual Source supplier of Products (if applicable), neither such agreement nor the purchase of the New Technology Product (by itself) shall constitute a breach of this Agreement or failure by HPG or Purchasers to meet the purchasing requirements under this Agreement.

Contract Compliance Process

In the event Vendor identifies a Participant that is not meeting its designated commitment requirement for specific Product(s) as stated in a writing between Participant and a Vendor (“Commitment Level”), the following steps are to be followed for addressing the compliance issues:

 

1. Vendor shall notify HPG of the non-compliance via the compliance form attached as Exhibit D-1. (The issue should not be sent directly to HPG by the Vendor representative in any other format). Vendor must verify that their local representative has met with the Materials Manager or the applicable Department Director for the Participant to discuss the issue of non-compliance prior to submission to HPG.

 

2. Upon receipt of the compliance form at HPG, the compliance team will contact the Participant to verify the Vendor representative has recently met with the Materials Manager or the applicable Department Director to discuss the issue. Vendor will be notified if HPG finds the Vendor representative has not discussed the issue directly with the Participant and place the process on hold until such discussion has occurred.

 

3. HPG will then ask the Participant if it agrees that it is not meeting the Compliance Level required. If the Participant is in agreement, HPG will move the Participant to a lower Commitment Level with corresponding higher prices based on Vendor’s suggestion, if such pricing is available under this Agreement. This move will not occur until thirty (30) days from the date of the original receipt of the compliance form by HPG.

 

4. If the Participant does not agree with Vendor’s assessment, Participant will provide to HPG usage numbers for that Product area for the previous six (6) months. HPG will calculate the overall percentage based on contract guidelines. If the Participant is meeting its commitment over the six (6) month period, Vendor will be notified that no pricing change should occur.

 

5. If HPG determines the Participant is not meeting its Commitment Level, the HPG compliance team will coordinate with Vendor and Participant in an effort to determine the applicable new pricing tier. Participant shall be moved to the new pricing tier on a date mutually agreed to by Vendor, HPG and the Participant, or as specified in any SIP Acknowledgement or Letter of Commitment between Vendor and the Participant.

 

6. In any event, all compliance resolution issues will be addressed by HPG within sixty (60) days, with HPG using commercially reasonable efforts to resolve such issues within such time period.

SCHEDULE B

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. […***…] Equipment Ownership. Purchaser acknowledges that Masimo has and retains title to the Equipment until Purchaser has met all its obligations under the contract, including the aggregated Annual Minimum Purchase Commitment. Title to the Equipment automatically transfers to Purchaser on completion of all such obligations.

[…***…]

[…***…] Purchaser will not sell, assign, sublet, transfer, abandon, part with contract, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any claim mortgage, pledge, lien, security interest or other charge or encumbrance of any kind upon or with respect to the Equipment or any part thereof or any of Purchaser’s rights under this Agreement, without Masimo’s written consent. Masimo shall have the option to make, and require Purchaser to execute, any and all information and/or lien filings Masimo deems appropriate under the Uniform Commercial Code to perfect a security interest in the Equipment. During the term of this Agreement, Purchaser shall bear the entire risk of loss and damage to the Equipment from any and every cause whatsoever, except for acts by Masimo. Except for loss of use caused by a Masimo material breach of contract that is not timely cured, no loss or damage to the Equipment (or any part thereof), or any failure of operation, shall impair any obligations of Purchaser (including, without limitation, payment obligations) under this Agreement, which shall continue in full force and effect.

2. Software License Grant. The Sensors and Equipment contain Masimo proprietary software (the “Software”), trade secrets and other proprietary information (collectively, “Intellectual Property”). Masimo grants to Purchaser a non-exclusive, non-transferable, perpetual license to use the Software and Intellectual Property in connection with its authorized use of the Equipment and Sensors. This Agreement does not constitute a sale of the Software or any Intellectual Property. The Purchaser may not reverse engineer, copy, modify, loan, rent, lease, assign, transfer, or sub-license the Software or Intellectual Property without Masimo’s prior written consent, which may be withheld at Masimo’s sole discretion; any attempt to do so will render the license null and void and use of the Software and Intellectual Property invalid.

3. Confidentiality. Neither party shall disclose to any unrelated third party or to any related party that is not bound by the obligations of confidentiality set forth herein or in its applicable participation agreement with HealthTrust Purchasing Group, or use for any purpose other than performance of this Agreement any information and proprietary material disclosed to it without the prior written consent of the disclosing party. The obligations of confidentiality shall not apply to information that at the time of disclosure or subsequently (i) is a matter of general public knowledge other than by a breach of this Agreement, (ii) is rightfully communicated to the recipient free of any obligation of confidence, or (iii) is made public by the disclosing party; or to information that is required to be disclosed by applicable law, provided however, that the recipient shall promptly notify the disclosing party of such requirement.

4. Limited Use of Equipment. […***…] The monitors are not intended to be used by anyone other than the Purchaser’s qualified and trained personnel or third party maintenance personnel trained by Masimo (or trained in accordance with Masimo’s maintenance processes in the case where Masimo trains the trainer for the third party service provider). Except as is described in the applicable user documentation or pursuant to Masimo’s maintenance training, the Purchaser may not modify or connect other monitors to the Masimo monitors, including software, hardware and related instruments without Masimo’s prior written authorization, which authorization may be withheld at Masimo’s sole discretion. The Parties acknowledge that the monitors, Software, sensors and related disposable accessories are intended for use for processes, procedures, experiments or any other uses for which are cleared for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

5. Delivery; Payment. Prices are shown on Schedule A and are FOB shipment origin, with freight and packaging added to invoice. Risk of loss shall pass to the Purchaser FOB shipment origin. Purchaser shall pay all sales, use, property, excise, import or export, value added or similar taxes (except Masimo’s income or franchise taxes) levied upon the delivery, transport, use or possession of the products. Payment terms are net 30 days from shipment date. Service charges of 1 1/2 % per month or the maximum rate permitted by law, if lower, may be charged on past due amounts. Masimo reserves the right to make partial deliveries. The carrier shall not be construed to be an agent of Masimo. Masimo shall not be held responsible for delays by carrier to make deliveries for any cause.

6. Service, Installation and Training. Installation and training are scheduled by mutual consent between Masimo and the Purchaser. Telephone support is provided to the Purchaser twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week. If the Purchaser experiences difficulty using the Equipment or sensors the Purchaser should call Masimo’s telephone support number.

7. Warranty; Limitation of Liability. Masimo warrants that the Masimo Equipment, Sensors and other accessories provided will materially conform to the published product specifications of Masimo and be free from material defects in materials and workmanship; […***…]. Provided that payments are current and Purchaser is not otherwise in breach of this Agreement, Masimo’s obligation if any Masimo Equipment,

Sensors or other accessories found upon examination by Masimo, to be defective during the warranty period shall be limited to repair or replacement. This warranty is subject to the following exclusions, exceptions and limitations: a) repair and maintenance necessitated by damage, neglect, misuse or improper operation of the Equipment, Software, or device; b) modification of Equipment, Sensors and Software without the express written authorization of Masimo; c) supplies, devices or electrical work external to the Masimo Equipment or not manufactured by Masimo; d) use of sensors or other accessories other than those manufactured and distributed by Masimo; and e) use of the Equipment and Sensors for uses and/or in environments for which they are not intended. For Equipment manufactured by third-parties, Masimo will pass on to Purchaser all terms and rights provided by the manufacturer. Masimo is not responsible and will charge the Purchaser for repair, replacement, or maintenance caused by damage, neglect, misuse, improper operation, accident, fire, water, vandalism, weather, war, or any Act of God, and unauthorized Equipment attached to Masimo Equipment, or unauthorized modification of Masimo Equipment or software. Warranty does not extend to any equipment, or software not manufactured by Masimo. THE FOREGOING WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF AND EXCLUDES ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, ARISING BY OPERATION OF LAW OR OTHERWISE, AND NO OTHER WARRANTIES EXIST, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE. MASIMO WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EXPENSES, LOST PROFITS, OR OTHER DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE EQUIPMENT AND SOFTWARE, EVEN IF MASIMO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.

8. Indemnification.

8.1 Bodily Injury. Masimo will defend, indemnify and hold Purchaser harmless against any and all liability, loss, damages, costs or expenses that Purchaser may hereafter incur, as a result of any injury, illness or death of any person which is caused by any Products, to the extent that such injury, illness or death resulted from (i) Masimo’s design or manufacture of the standard Products or (ii) failure of any Product at the time of shipment to Purchaser to materially comply with its published specification. “Product(s)” means any Sensors, accessories and Equipment provided to Purchaser under this Agreement, including without limitation third party monitors that contain Masimo SET or Rainbow SET technology under license from Masimo (“OEM Monitors”).

8.2 Infringement. Masimo will defend, indemnify and hold Purchaser harmless against infringement or alleged infringement directly resulting from standard Products furnished under this Agreement, of any patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, or any other proprietary right of any third party. In the event of such claim, Masimo may, at its sole discretion, (i) modify the particular Product to make it non-infringing, (ii) obtain a license to allow the continued use of the Product, or (iii) terminate this Agreement, and take possession of and refund all fees paid for the infringing Products.

8.3 Exclusions. Masimo shall have no liability or responsibility of any kind to Purchaser under this Section (“Indemnification”) unless Purchaser (i) promptly notifies Masimo of such claims, (ii) gives Masimo an adequate opportunity to defend, including complete control of such defense, and (iii) provides reasonable assistance to Masimo, at Masimo’s expense and request, in connection with the defense and settlement of any such claim. Masimo shall have no liability for settlements made without Masimo’s express written consent. Should Purchaser desire to have its own counsel participate in any such action, the cost of such counsel shall be exclusively Purchaser’s. Notwithstanding the above, Masimo shall not be liable for any infringement of intellectual property rights of third parties or for any liability, loss, damages, costs or expenses which Purchaser may incur as a result of any injury, illness or death resulting from (a) alterations or modifications to the Products made by Purchaser or others (or by Masimo, in the case of an infringement claim) at Purchaser’s request, (b) electrical/electronics, software/firmware, sensors, or product interface not furnished by Masimo, (c) combination of the Products with other apparatus or technology not furnished or, in the case of infringement claims, specified in writing by Masimo, (d) use of products or components not supplied by Masimo, (e) use of Products not permitted under this Agreement, or (f) for any claims not related directly to the Products. The preceding sentence does not exclude Masimo’s indemnification obligations for claims arising out of Masimo SET or Rainbow SET technology contained in OEM Monitors or the combination of such technology with Masimo Sensors and Equipment. If Masimo fails to assume its obligation to defend Purchaser, then Purchaser may do so to protect its interest and seek reimbursement from Masimo.

9. Termination. In the event of a breach of a material obligation of this Agreement by either party, the other party will provide written notice including all supporting documentation of the breach. If the breach is not cured within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice (ten (10) days in the event of breach of payment obligations), the notifying party shall be entitled, in addition to all other remedies available to such party, to terminate this Agreement for cause and without penalty by providing written notice in accordance with the Agreement. Termination of this Agreement for material breach shall be without prejudice to all accrued rights and remedies the parties may have, and shall not affect any continuing rights and obligations the parties may have under this Agreement. All payments made before the date of termination are non-refundable. Purchaser shall pay any outstanding balances due Masimo for services performed or products delivered prior to termination, except for those, if any, that are related to Masimo’s breach. […***…].

10. Power and Authority; Amendments. Masimo and Purchaser each represent to the other that each has full and complete power and authority to execute this Agreement and that this Agreement constitutes a valid and binding obligation of Masimo and Purchaser, respectively, enforceable in accordance with its terms. Amendments to this Agreement (other than the addition of Additional Products), which includes without limitation any additional terms not set forth herein, may only be made via a written amendment signed by Masimo and by Purchaser. Only an executive vice-president or the president of Masimo has the authority to sign this Agreement or any amendment or schedule hereto.

11. General. This Agreement contains the entire understanding between Masimo and the Purchaser and supersedes all prior understandings, written or oral, regarding the subject of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything else herein to the contrary, some or all of Masimo’s rights under this agreement may be assigned to a third party for purposes of financing, an affiliate, or a successor in interest resulting from a merger or acquisition. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found to be unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the remainder of these Terms and Conditions, which shall remain valid and enforceable according to the terms hereof. This Agreement shall not be binding until approved by Masimo at its home office. The courts and substantive laws of the states of both parties’ home offices shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction to resolve any disputes between the parties. The prevailing party in any litigation between the parties shall receive from the other party all reasonable costs incurred by the prevailing party, including attorneys’ fees.
