Software management consists of both maintenance and development. These two services are so different in nature that the Norwegian Computer Association has chosen to prepare a contract standard for each of the areas; a Software Maintenance Contract and a Development Services Framework Agreement.
The Software management agreement (Forvaltningsavtalen) consists of both these agreements:
1. Framework agreement on development services version 2.1
The purpose of the Framework agreement is to regulate the parties’ obligations and rights in connection with development services related to software that is delivered and maintained in accordance with separate agreements.
2, Maintenance contract for software version 2.1
The maintenance contract is designed to ensure the maintenance of software developed or customized for a customer. The software itself can consist of both standard software and specially developed software.
