IntroductionCitizen-Schwarz AG, a large German bank, has contracted span Systems, a global software designer. Span Systems and C-S have had a tremulous relationship. The strained relationship led to claims and counter claims over quality discrepancies, schedule changes and end-user requirements. User and system requirements have increased since the system study stage. The unusual changes have affected C-S's approval and review times. Span's team has gone above and beyond to meet the new schedules. Quality has suffered as a result of the demanding schedule.Throughout this paper Team B will discuss regulation, legal procedures, needs and risks of both companies. Our team will analyze which contract provisions are necessary and which party will prevail.Citizen-Schwartz BankCitizen-Schwarz wants to rescind the contract with Span System, a software provider, claiming on the failure of on-time delivery and unacceptable quality for several months. C-S seems to transfer unfinished code to an Indian software provider in the market because they cannot afford schedule slips due to its deadline for the release of the transaction software in the market that can be a legal violation against Span.Legal PositionBreach of contract under substantial performanceC-S party's requirements have been changed and system has developed since the bid on the project.

Reviews of the deliverables have not happened as planned leading of slipped schedules.Breach of contract under 'intellectual property rights'C-S cannot force Span to transfer the code of finished work products since payments for the recent few deliverables remain outstanding. Because the intellectual property rights of all work products remain vested until all sums due to Span have been paid as per the agreement between C-S and Span.
