Dear Alok Singh,

Instead of making a formal agreement, you can issue the Purchase Order (PO) to hire the services of the plumbing contractor. You can attach the terms and conditions to the PO. You may incorporate the following additional points:

a) In the Scope of Work (SOW), you have listed the points where the plumbing services will be executed. However, in the first four points, you have mentioned the toilets but not the urinals, wash basins, etc.
b) The fifth point is "Leakage repair in plumbing line, inside & outside plant premises." Why the plumbing contractor will do the repairs outside the plant premises? Is it not the job of the local municipal corporation?
c) For every visit, the plumber is expected to note the details of the work done. What about the format of the service log to record the details? Will it be recorded on a register or a loose sheet? Who will sign from the company for the work done? Will there be records for the plumbing items issued by the company?
d) Precautions to be observed for repairs of the ladies' washroom are not mentioned.
e) Responsibility for the repairs arising out of poor workmanship is not mentioned.
f) The overhead tanks supply the water to the washrooms. What about the repair work of the overhead tanks? What if the water pipes start leaking at the rooftop?
g) You are going to pay ₹18,000 per month. But what about the payment terms? Should the contractors raise the invoice as per the standard copy approved by the company? Who the plumbing contractor will hand over the invoice?
h) Please include the points about safety precautions and safety training for the plumbers.
i) What about the accident(s) arising during the work? Who will be responsible for settling the claims? If the company will not settle the claims because of the accident(s), then include an indemnity clause also.
j) What is the duration of the agreement? For how long amount of ₹18,000 per month will remain valid? Will there be a percentage increase every year?
