Oracle LMS Audit Negotiations
Audit Negotiation Stages
After assessing of all data already shared with Oracle during the audit we provide you with a motivated understanding how viable your internal strategy is, and to which level you can reduce the claim yourself. More importantly, a clear and motivated understanding as to if and to which level we can add more value to your strategy, in order to improve your results.
Agree to SOW
To ensure we are only incentivized for exceeding your own capabilities, we propose a Statement of Work on a success-based fee structure. As part of the SOW we recognize that any initial claim or price point from Oracle can also be reduced by yourself without enabling this expert service.
Agree & Execute negotiation strategy
You will learn which and why some of Oracle’s conclusions won’t stand the test of law or fair conduct, and how they should be countered effectively. Technical and contractual areas are discussed with your stakeholders, outlining any leverage that can be brought to Oracle. Team members are informed about how Oracle will anticipate during the engagement. We will prepare the team accordingly.
Within 48 hours you will know how viable your internal strategy is, and to which level you can reduce the claim yourself. More importantly, a clear and motivated understanding as to if and to which level we can add more value to your strategy, in order to improve your results.
