Other details

This Services Agreement is based on the New Zealand Government Model Contract for Services ("GMC Services").  The intention is to provide a simple form of agreement, which many people (suppliers, customers and their advisers) will be familiar with based on their dealings with the New Zealand Government.   This should reduce the time and cost of negotiations.

This form of agreement easily enables you to add as many parties as required, and to select the type of entity for each party from a drop-down list that includes New Zealand companies, limited partnerships, trusts, partnerships, charitable trusts, and incorporated societies.

Details such as addresses for notices and deliveries, and the appointment of contract managers are swiftly managed.

If there are approved personnel or approved subcontractors who need to be listed, this is easily done.

The most important sections - where you describe the services - have plenty of space and options for you to describe the broader context, and the services that are required. By capturing all the other information very quickly, you will have more time to focus your attention here.
General descriptions of the services and related performance standards can be added, and then you can really drill down into details of the services and each milestone or deliverable. You can describe particular milestones or deliverables; particular performance standards; due dates for delivery of deliverables or milestones; and amounts due on successful completion of each deliverable or milestone.

If you have particular reporting requirements for the supplier, these can be added, along with details of due dates and report descriptions, and who the report is to go to.

Fees can be specified in New Zealand dollars or another currency, and there are options to specify fees as a single fixed rate, a single hourly or daily rate, or individual hourly or daily rates for particular people. 
You can decide whether expenses or daily allowances are payable in addition to the Fees and, if so, on what basis.  Particular types of expenses and maximum costs can be entered.
Invoicing can be covered off, including when invoices are to be sent, who they are to be sent to, and how they are to be sent.
Any particular insurance requirements can be set out, including types of insurance and minimum required amounts.

It is relatively easy to specify changes to the standard schedule 2 which accompanies the agreement. A number of common amendments can be selected from a list of options, making it easier to incorporate those changes in a standard format which should reduce variances for things that should be standard and reduce time and cost.
