For any service or engagement specific to, or in pursuit of, Uptime Institute awards of “Activated” and/or “Stamp of Approval,” the following terms and limitations apply. Any contract, purchase order, or work authorization based upon this proposal is subject to the limitations set forth below.
All Uptime Institute Efficient IT (UIEIT) Awards will have validity periods of one year for Activated and two years for Stamp of Approval. The UIEIT Activated shall reflect a commitment to the principles of the assessment and require reassessment within 1 year. The UIEIT Stamp of Approval shall reflect the design, operations, and leadership reviewed during the site visit and in-office reviews and is awarded to a specific data center. Should an awardee attempt to apply an UIEIT Award to previous or future program or other data center(s) will result in potential revocation of award, at Uptime Institute's full discretion. Additionally, if the conditions leading to the UIEIT Award are no longer in place or have notably varied from UIEIT criteria, then Uptime Institute reserves the right to withhold award(s) or remove any award(s) from its own website or other public placement.
