Weagree's model services agreement, with a scope defined in a project description, statement of work or in abstract wording. Assuming the service provider creates IP (intellectual property rights). Distinguishing foreground (existing) IP from background (under-this-contract-created) IP. Includes IP-indemnity.
This is Weagree’s model services agreement, drafted service provider-friendly. The template allows for flexibility in addressing Service specifications in the project description or SOW (listing all required results, deliverables etc.). An extensive clause grants the customer a right to use all IP created by the service provider (foreground IPR). This template services agreement assumes that existing IPR (background IPR) is properly available to the customer and that no further licence is required.
The services agreement contains a basic clause on regular evaluating the services delivery. It includes a clause on ‘Variation’ (or ‘Modifications’ or Work changes) of the specified service deliverables or milestones.
Also a clause on ‘acceptance’ testing is included, with a simple mechanism to settle disagreements.
The agreement presumes the establishment of a steering committee (or joint project team) with the customer.
Note that this model services agreement is also automated in the Weagree Wizard: upon answering a Q&A, Weagree users can generate a tailored services agreement reflecting their interests (as service provider).
