A Project Management Agreement is a specific type of Service Agreement, whereby a client hires someone to oversee and manage a project for them (that person is called the project manager). This document is very similar to a traditional Service Agreement, but some of the terms are removed and others are adjusted to more closely conform to the project management relationship. This Project Management Agreement can cover any type of project, from a construction project to a simple business collaboration.
Within these agreements, the project manager and client define each of their respective responsibilities and outline the scope of the work.
In a Project Management Agreement, the most important details of the parties' relationship will be entered: things such as a description of the project, well as pricing information, and how the client is expected to pay. A good Project Management Agreement will also have both parties covered in case anything goes wrong: clauses such as dispute resolution and governing law should be included.
How to use this document
This document can be used by a client looking to hire a project manager, or it can be used by a freelance project manager as a template for the services they provide to their various clients.
In this document, pertinent identifying details will be entered, such as whether the parties are individuals or businesses, and their respective addresses and contact information. Then, the most important characteristics of the agreement between the parties will be entered, like duration for the work (if it should continue indefinitely until the project is complete or end at a date certain), fee information, and of course, what exactly the project and project management services are.
When this agreement is filled out, it should be printed and signed or e-signed by both parties, and a copy should be kept with each.
Project Management Agreements in the United States are subject to both Federal laws and specific state laws, which cover general contract principles like formation and mutual understanding. Federal laws may restrict what services can be contracted for (for example, no one may not contract for anything illegal) and certain broad categories, like contracting for something that looks more like an employment relationship, but individual state laws may govern the interpretation of the contract in case of a dispute.
