Service Agreement Information Kit for Funded Organisations

2.5 Parties to agreement

Every Service Agreement has at least two parties to the Agreement. These are the organisation or organisations delivering the services and the department providing funding. Non-incorporated consortium agreements will have multiple organisation parties, made up of the consortium member organisations.

The Service Agreement contains the name and position title of the officers authorised to enter into the Service Agreement on behalf of the organisation and funding department. It is important that these details remain up to date.

Organisation

An officer authorised to enter into the Service Agreement (contract) on behalf of the organisation must be listed in the Service Agreement. The organisation's incorporation details will often dictate who has authority to sign a Service Agreement on behalf of an organisation.
