Charities: Engaging a
consultant to provide (non-fundraising) services.
Does your charity contract with any providers of consultancy or other
services? Charities often need to buy in various services, including
various consultancy services such as writing training or other
materials, provision of training services, or advice to the charity about
marketing the charity to donors or supporters.
New document: Agreement for
procuring consultant’s services.
This new template Agreement for Charity to Procure Services
(Non-Fundraising) can be used by a charity commissioning an individual or
company to provide it with consultancy or various other types of services.
(The template is not suitable for engaging a person or company to actually
carry out fundraising for the charity but our Charity Group of documents
includes some template agreements for that specific purpose.)
This comprehensive template sets out all of the important legal and
commercial terms of the engagement of the consultant, and it can be amended
to suit the type of services needed and your charity’s particular
requirements and circumstances in each case.
Schedule 2 of the template includes data protection provisions to be
included where relevant and it is compliant with the GDPR (General Data
Protection Regulation). The template, including its schedules, will cover
fairly complex services but if the services are relatively unsophisticated,
some or all of the detailed provisions in Schedule 3 can easily be deleted,
leaving you with a shorter, simpler document.
As always, you should seek legal advice if you are not sure whether this
template will meet your needs or if you need help to edit or add to it to
meet your particular needs.
