    confused

    Hi,

    could you please help me with the following:

    Supplier is eligible for payment in accordance with Annex 1 for any candidate referred by supplier to the company that is hired for any position at the company within 3 months of supplierīs referral. Payment in accordance with Annex 1 is not contingent upon supplierīs success in placing a candidate with the company unless specifically stated.

    Arenīt the two sentences contradictory? One says that the supplier will be paid for any candidate hired by the company and the other says that the payment is not dependent on successful placement of the candidate.

    Thanks a lot!

    Is it perhaps emphasising that the successful placement must be accompanied by written confirmation? Also, the use of the word "eligible" rather implies that it is not a given that payment is inevitable.
