Master Services Agreement

This is appropriate for multi-year projects in which the scope of work is not fully defined at the time of the contract. A Project Agreement is required to incorporate the scope of work into the Master Agreement. If the scope of work is fully defined, then the standard independent contract should be used.

Project Agreement

A Project Agreement is a companion to the Master Services Agreement. A Project Agreement is not a stand alone agreement and should never be used unless a Master Services Agreement was previously executed. This agreement is used to incorporate the specific services (Scope of Work and Budget) into a Master Services Agreement. Last updated: June. 2018
