Stockpilling contract
« on: January 01, 2009, 02:00:26 pm »
Quote
1. The government opts to buy X goods at Y price for a total of X*Y not counting
possible discount due to massive buying.
2. The government will pay in full and in advance for the requested amount of goods.
3. The company who agreed upon the terms is obligated to keep this amount of goods minus
daily production in stock at all times.
4. should the company not have the required amount in stock they will
start producing and put no more than 4/10 of their daily production on
the market as to not loose their position on the market.
5. If the company owner whishes to sell their company with the included stock the
government will recieve at least a notice of the "amount of goods
bought" divided by "average daily production in the sector" (this gives
a number in days) as to keep the possibility to have a decent
stockpile. The government will also recieve a full refund in money of
the amount of goods.
6. If the company whishes to upgrade: the government will recieve
at least a notice of the "amount of goods bought" divided by "average
daily production in the sector" (this gives a number in days) as to keep
the possibility to have a decentstockpile. The government will also
recieve a full refund in money of the amount of goods.
7. If the government requires the goods it will give at least 24h warning in times of war and 48h in times of peace. The company will place them on the market against ridiculous prices (i.e. 2 times the current market value) as to make sure only the government buys them up. The company will return the payed amount back to the government.

looks like a good proposal. I don't see any issues with it. Then again, I have absolutely no experience on the economic side of things. But it reads well to noobs :P

There still needs to be some legislation for this and a way to store all of the info for legislation in a way that it can be easily accessible for everybody. This means not a forum post but maybe the suggested library in the form of a website.

Look, I know it's a good idea (I proposed it) Put in some constructive posts as to make this contract equally fair for company and government.

I can't see anything to change. It looks, to me at least, to be very fair to all parties involved.

is there going to be any accountability with this? in a worst case scenario someone in government who owns a company or has a friend who does gives a very generous contract to the company with the aim of siphoning off a little extra for themselves... i.e. will this require a vote in congress?

also is the aim of this to buy when a good is cheap or...? if the government enters into a contract at the wrong time they could end up paying a lot of money and then a couple of weeks later when they actually want to use the weapons etc. find the market price is in fact significantly less than when they bought?

I don't think they are buying off the market. Rather, agreeing on a fixed price.

Buying in bulk at a low fixed price to stockpile is great idea!

ABout the weapons query. Weapons are MUCH cheaper in peace when they are not being used. Its only in war when they are needed that they are expensive so I can't see that being a problem

I could possibly supply the military with Q4 weapons at the production cost of the weapons and not make any profit.

I'm happy to discuss this with you. Perhaps I could arrange to buy any Q4's @ cost over a certain number that you get in stock?
That should allow you to keep on selling as normal, and not be overproducing in times of peace.

Just contact Ip directly with this, so he can sort it out. Posting here might show favouritism.
