Sorry to bore some of you with yet one more response on this threadbare thread, but if certain people keep tossing out lies and/or accusations about SSA GT and various contract legalities, they really should be corrected to avoid confusion. I have a feeling the people doing these alarmist postings are NOT actual BPCS customers but are some very recently soured grapes. (Note the lack of full names and/or company affiliation on their posts).
If you have legal questions, accusations or rumors to confirm I suggest you contact the contractual departments (Finance and Administration) at SSA GT in Chicago. The main number is 312-258-6000. Take option 8 and you will go directly to someone who can answer your questions. Please leave the techies on this list group alone. The people montitoring this list from SSA GT are mostly programmers, HelpLine, field application consultants and various R&D managers - not the contracts department or lawyers. If you want legal answers, I suggest you phone that department. This list server is NOT an official means of communication between SSA GT and our customers. Opinions express by SSA GT employees on this list are just that.
Unless you were otherwise informed, SSA GT has assumed the contract you had with SSA. SSA GT must therefore honor those contracts.
Back to real matters of BPCS software and how it works (or doesn't work or should work) ....I now return you to your regularly scheduled list server......
