A Master Service Contract (MSA) is a contract between two parties with an ongoing project or business relationship, which provides a flexible system for completing a project over time when decisions need to be made along the way. The goal of an MSA is to define the boundaries of the contractual relationship, to put in place a system of accomplishment of the work to be done and to provide an effective way to keep the work on track and to resolve any disputes that may arise during the project. This white paper will address the fundamentals of the development and negotiation of MSA, best practices for executives working under an ASM, and the frequent litigation that arises under the MSA regime, and how to effectively resolve these disputes.

Clients often want the right to terminate a current MSA or SOW for convenience after notice, and this is an area that varies depending on the economic relationship provided by the relationship. Before we delve into the details, we must first understand the purpose of a master service contract. ACCORDS are usually found in service provision agreements, such as the . B in an agreement on the provision of IT consulting services. After all, it is a creative activity and, from time to time, you have to expect the results to be reviewed – and there should be a process that is pre-agreed.
