14.06 Changes and Upgrades to Software.
Except as may be approved in writing by AMO, IBM shall not make any changes or modifications to the Software used to provide the Covered Services that would adversely alter the functionality of the Systems or degrade the performance of the Systems, except as may be necessary on a temporary basis to maintain the continuity of the Covered Services.
Subject to the Change Control Procedures, IBM shall, at AMOs option, and with AMOs prior written approval, install for AMO in connection with the Covered Services any upgrade, modification or enhancement to the Systems at the then-current level at the time such upgrade, modification or enhancement is available.
For each Covered Service and any Developed Software or Work Product deliverable to be provided by IBM hereunder, and any upgrade, modification or enhancement to the Systems, AMO shall have the right to review and to perform acceptance testing of each such deliverable. IBM shall deliver to AMO each such deliverable not less than thirty (30) days prior to the date such deliverable is scheduled to be placed into productive use by or for the benefit of AMO, and AMO shall complete its review and testing within such period, provided that AMO reserves the right to extend the test period. IBM shall also provide AMO with such assistance as AMO may reasonably require to conduct acceptance testing of applicable deliverables.

Unless otherwise agreed, IBM shall, as soon as reasonably feasible, but in no event more than thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice), correct the Errors and redeliver the deliverable to AMO. AMO shall thereupon have thirty (30) days within which to reconduct acceptance review and testing to determine whether the Errors previously identified have been corrected and whether any other Errors have been introduced.
