3.2       Where the cover page is completed as an estimate, the value attributed to the Goods and Services on the cover page is not the Price but only an estimate of what the Price will be.  Instead, if the Customer subsequently instructs the Supplier to supply the Goods and Services, the Price will be calculated in accordance with clause 3.1.

3.3       Where the cover page is completed as a quotation, unless otherwise agreed in writing:

3.3.1    The Supplier reserves the right to alter the quotation price if, before the supply of the Goods and Services is completed, the cost to the Supplier of any of the Goods or Services changes, or (due to product unavailability) the Supplier is obliged to supply substituted but comparable Goods which are obtained at a different price than was costed in the quotation, or the Supplier’s cost of labour increases; provided that any increase in the quotation price must be no more than the equivalent additional cost to the Supplier of such Goods or labour;

3.3.2    Where additional goods or services are required, in addition to the Goods and Services which are the subject of the quotation, the Supplier may increase the Price to include such additional goods or services; and

            3.3.3    The quotation is valid for acceptance by the Customer for 30 days from the date it is issued.
