Professional Services Agreement

Why you need a Professional Services Agreement

Customers seek professional services to provide them with unique, speedy, highly specialised and skilled work. If you provide a professional service to your clients, you want a framework agreement that can work to your pace and level.

What is a Professional Services Agreement?

The Professional Services Agreement will work alongside a Statement of Work to tell the story of your project. In it, both parties will be able to answer questions on responsibilities, delays, ownership, payment and disputes.

This is a 'Forever template'

We will continually update this template with the frequent Microsoft updates such as CSP and other flow down terms, plus we will update the relevant terms to ensure you can claim as many rebates as possible, and get recognised by Microsoft such as CPoR, (Claims Partner of Record) DPoR (Digital Partner of Record), and PAL (Partner Admin Link).

We will also continually update this template as the law changes, for example, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the effects of Brexit on our laws, as we untangle ourselves from the European Union.
