I am negotiating a Master Services Agreement with a consulting firm. Their process is to prepare a proposal that both parties sign in lieu of a work order. I didn't have a problem with that, except that their proposals were pretty skimpy on the details of what they were going to do. Now they have offered us a template for a work order that refers to a separate document ("project") for the details of the work. Can anyone provide any insight as to why they want two documents instead of one (for example, why not just include the details of the work in the work order)?
