Statements of Work
A statement of work, or SOW, will contain the details of the actual project. Timelines, deliverables, responsibilities, SLAs, escalation, and payment terms. A Statement of Work is something you’d want as a plug and play, meaning, you would have your attorney draft the framework of the Statement of Work and your technical staff will input the details of the project.
Many people make the mistake of thinking that the SOW is just a technical document, something a lawyer doesn’t need to look at. While it’s true that it is primarily a technical document, you want to make sure that your lawyer has outlined the legal terms of it which can be the payment terms, responsibilities and so forth.
