Best of 2001: Download this sample contract template

A clear, comprehensive contract is as important to your consulting career as the work you do. This sample contract template can help ensure both you and your clients are on sound legal ground.


In addition to service level agreements, contracts are a standard tool for consultants and their clients to ensure that both are performing the necessary tasks to get their work done. Working without either often isn’t an option.

To help consultants and their clients maintain the best possible relationship, we suggest you download this contract template as a guide. The article that led members to this template—which was sent to us by a TechRepublic member—was listed as the third most popular item in IT Consultant Republic for 2001.

For TechRepublic member Shem Taggart, the template showed up on our site at a perfect time. “I have three or four small-office clients on the side and have discussed with a couple of them the need for a contract,” he told us in an e-mail. “Your sample is well done and comprehensive—perfect for a quantum-leap starting point for me.”
