Once BBNC is awarded a contract , we have a responsibility to strictly comply with its requirements . Deviations from the requirements may be prohibited unless they are approved by the respective parties . Some unauthorized deviations can be considered a criminal act , such as failing to deliver materials paid under contract or providing goods that :
Are made from lower quality materials than specified ;
Have not been tested and approved as required ;
Contain foreign-made materials when the contract requires domestic materials .
Never substitute material or change testing and quality control requirements unless you follow authorized procedures and receive prior approval .
