What is a model contract?
A model contract is a contract template on which you can base your own contract. In order to arrive at a model contract, SURF initially negotiates with a supplier on behalf of one institution. The resulting contract is converted into a template so that other institutions can use it to conclude their own agreement with any additional agreements. The template contract is available free of charge. You deliver the signed contract to us, we will use it as a product. Ordering and invoicing will then take place according to the current ordering and invoicing agreements.
When can you use a model contract?
You may use a model contract if the value of the contract is less than €70,000 for the duration of the contract. This amount is the maximum value below which one-to-one contracts may be awarded (see PIANOo's Guide to Proportionality). Is the amount mentioned in your own procurement policy lower than 70,000 euro? Then your institution must respect that amount.
