Subscriptions and other Fees (Service Providers only)

If you are a service provider, you may begin your annual subscription [here]  Once you have an active subscription, we will send you requests for proposals (“RFPs”) and invite you to send us written responses to the RFPs pursuant to our Service Provider Subscription Web Form.  If your response to the RFP is selected, you may begin negotiating the terms of a contract award (“Contract Award”) with a facility manager or property owner (the “Contracting Party”).  If you enter into a Contract Award, you are responsible for collecting payment from the Contracting Party and agree to pay us the Contract Award fees listed on our Service Provider Pricing page.  Procursys does not guarantee payment by the Contracting Party of any fees owed to you in accordance with a Contract Award. Procursys is not responsible for the collection, monitoring, payment or invoicing of any fees owed to you in accordance with a Contract Award.

The Contract Award fee you shall pay to Procursys (“Success Fee”) may change from time to time and for different Contract Awards obtained through the Services.  Please see Contract Award Success Fee listed on our Service Provider Pricing page.  For a fixed fee seasonal Contract Award obtained through the Services, you shall pay Procursys a Success Fee equal to the percentage outlined on our Service Provider Pricing page multiplied by the value of the total Contract Award.  For instance, if the Contract Award is ten thousand dollars and the percentage outlined on our Service Provider Pricing page is three point five percent, the Success Fee you shall pay to Procursys will be equal to three hundred and fifty dollars ($10,000 * 0.035 = $350.00).  For a per event or time and materials Contract Award obtained through the Services, you shall pay Procursys a Success Fee equal to the percentage outlined on our Service Provider Pricing page multiplied by the fees earned as a result of the Contract Award.  For instance, if you earn ten thousand dollars for an event or invoice ten thousand dollars in time and materials and the percentage outlined on our Service Provider Pricing page is three point five percent, the Success Fee you shall pay to Procursys will be equal to three hundred and fifty dollars ($10,000 * 0.035 = $350.00).  If you earn additional fees through contract enhancements, add on work or extensions of any kind as a result of a Contract Award obtained through the Services, the Success Fee outlined above shall apply in all cases.  All Success Fees associated with a Contract Award obtained through the Services are immediately due and payable upon receipt by you of any fee resulting from a Contract Award.

Your subscription is an annual subscription, billed annually, in advance and with automatic renewals on the first anniversary date and all subsequent anniversary dates of the completion of an account set up for a further term of 1 year unless either party gives the other written notice of termination at least 30 days prior to the end of the relevant term.

You shall provide to Procursys an accounting of all fees invoiced in accordance with a Contract Award obtained through the services within thirty (30) days of receiving a written request from Procursys.  Procursys reserves the right to audit your business records and systems upon five (5) days advance written notice for purposes of determining compliance with our Service Provider Pricing terms.  We reserve the right to charge your account if we determine in good faith that you have failed to accurately report the full Contract Award amounts that serve as the basis for the Contract Award Fees.

Subscriptions and other payments are processed through our third party payment processor, who has its own separate terms and conditions accessible here.

You are responsible for any fees charged by your internet service provider or mobile carrier for using the Service, including, but not limited to data transfer fees.
