About this template

This document is taken from the gov.uk website, and comes with the following explanation: This document provides a starting point for mutuals and commissioners working on a spin-out. They have been drafted according to a series of assumptions, to be adapted on a case by case basis by professional advisors.

If the mutual is to carry out the services as a contractor for the Local Authority, the mutual will be funded under a Services Agreement.  

The Services Agreement protects the Local Authority as the contracting authority by setting out the terms of the funding and the services to be provided, and providing remedies to the contracting authority if the terms are breached. The Agreement protects the mutual as the contractor by legally binding the contracting authority to pay the fee for the services on time.

This template Services Agreement provides these protections and contains standard terms covering (amongst others): the contract period; the obligations of the parties; monitoring and reporting requirements; intellectual property and publicity; and provisions for termination of the funding arrangement by either party.

This template has been prepared to provide general guidance and information to organisations considering or undertaking mutualisation. It is  intended to be a starting point only and should not be considered a finalised legal document or as constituting legal advice. It is the responsibility of your organisation to seek legal advice and to ensure that the document is reviewed and signed off by your legal team.

The template contains a breakdown of drafting assumptions which highlight areas where additional drafting and legal advice may be required. Additional drafting is not limited to these areas and you should seek further legal guidance where you deem necessary.
Whilst we have endeavoured to ensure that the information in the template is correct, no warranty, express or implied, is given as to the templates accuracy, timeliness, completeness or fitness for a particular purpose and we do not accept any liability for errors or omissions.  Neither the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, nor Bates Wells Braithwaite shall be liable to you or anyone else for any decisions made or action taken in reliance on this document, or for any damage arising from its use.

Why use a
🛎️ Supply of Services Agreement

A supply of services agreement is a contract between a service provider and a client that sets out the terms and conditions of the provision of services. It is important to have a written agreement in place to protect both parties and to ensure that the services are provided in accordance with the agreed upon terms. The agreement should cover all aspects of the provision of services, including the scope of work, payment terms, and any other relevant details.

Senior Employment Agreement (Genie)

This is a senior employment agreement template that we at Genie AI have used to hire 20+ employees. The agreement is structured so that all the key commercial terms that would change per employee are kept at the bottom in a table in the schedule, to make it easy to use on an ongoing basis. Since this is a senior employment contract, it contains a significant amount of provisions for restrictive covenants, such as non-solicitation (enticing away of customers, business or employees after the employee has left) and non-compete clauses. There is also provision to make reference to an incentive scheme such as an EMI option scheme, however it is recommended to keep this in a separate agreement, in order to avoid a binding promise and avoid variations to the incentive scheme resulting in variations to the terms of employment. Apart from that this is a fairly simple agreement that is easy to use and repeat for many employees.
