I submitted a request to see the contract that Unit 4 has with Dr. Alves; I received a printed sheaf of documents. So, I scanned them in and had FreeOCR converted them back to electronic text. Aside from the markup (bold and underlined words), it came across … decently. I still had to clean it up.
It is mostly legal jargon. I intend to look it over and try to make heads or tails of it. At first glance, I did not see any set money amount at all. In fact, it looks mostly to be for some “software” that we are licensing. Which confuses me, because I know we pay him for more than just a software license (software which we do not have, by the way). Lots and “ifs”, “ands” and “buts”. (*sigh*)
So, feel free to peruse this and let me know what you find. The more eyes the better. I have a feeling I am going to go back to Unit 4 and say something like “umm… this is not quite what I asked for.” But I want to read it thoroughly first. Or at least attempt to.
