“Managing Contract Issues in Business” Please respond to the following:
1. Imagine you are a senior manager in a U.S. manufacturing firm who procures component parts and services from various states. What is required for a valid contract and what might put your company at risk if not sufficiently scrutinized prior to signing a contract? Explain contract formation and differences pursuant to Common Law versus the Uniform Commercial Code. Why is it important to distinguish and identify which applies?
