Agreement to engage a Service or Services
This Agreement sets forth the general terms and conditions of your engagement with Project Checkpoint and any of its products or services.
Before we commence our work together, we need your (“client”, “individual”, “company”, “organisation”, “institution”) written agreement by email to email@example.com with email subject line: Quote [Number] Agree to Proceed and full payment of 1st deposit. The email body should contain the following statement – “I have read and hereby agree with the terms and conditions”. This confirms commencement of the service(s) as agreed between us, along with the scope of work, quoted price, date of 1st payment, and proposed start and end dates.
Contracting on behalf of others
You may engage Project Checkpoint on behalf of others – which may include another individual, company, organisation or institution. In this case, you need to clarify and agree on the person or persons responsible for executing the contract and payments. This information needs to confirmed and provided in an email to Project Checkpoint.
You agree to indemnify Project Checkpoint against any claim for compensation or damages brought about as a direct or indirect consequence of the work we do for you (“your”, “client”, “individual”, “company”, “organisation”, “institution”).
Quote for Services
Project Checkpoint offers both fixed and hourly rate pricing to cover all services provided to you. The type of pricing depends on the service. Details of pricing will be discussed with you prior to finalising the quote. Prices provided are valid for 28 days from the date included in quote. If you do not respond or accept the quote within the 28 days, Project Checkpoint will deem the quote lapsed and the agreed prices will no longer be valid. Please note that any service(s) or changes (e.g. scope, direction, project) requested or required outside of our contractual agreement will incur additional charges and may impact the completion date. Intention to make changes or to add services must be confirmed with Project Checkpoint via an email.
Also, additional charges will incur if you require Project Checkpoint to liaise with external agencies (“company”, “organisation”, “institution”) on behalf of you.
For Project Checkpoint to deliver high quality and responsive service to you, it is important that you are available throughout the agreed contract period. While we understand that unforeseen circumstances may occur, please notify Project Checkpoint of any delays or planned holidays as soon as possible. You may nominate an alternate contact person during your absence. Project Checkpoint must receive details of the alternate contact person at least 5 days prior to your date of absence. If we experience no response from you or the nominated alternate contact person continuously for 28 days, Project Checkpoint will terminate the contract with immediate effect. A prorated refund (minus the amount covering for all services delivered up till the date of termination + AUD$50 administration fees) will be provided to you, along with a written confirmation via email to notify the contract termination.
Before commencement of work, Project Checkpoint will invoice you for a deposit of 50% of the total quoted price. Work will not commence until the deposit is received in full. The final invoice will be issued two weeks (or earlier depending on the contract length or service type) prior to our agreed date of completion. The final amount may vary depending on any changes or additions requested by you (“your”, “client”, “individual”, “company”, “organisation”, “institution”) – refer to Section 7. Changes in Scope. Invoices will be sent electronically.
Payment terms are 7 working days from the date on the invoice if you are based in Australia, and 14 working days if you are based outside of Australia. Payments are accepted via bank transfer or other online money transfer services (if you are outside of Australia). Please notify Project Checkpoint if you require additional time to make the first payment or a timeframe that is more suitable to meet your financial needs.
Any other costs (including accommodation, presenter fees, travel costs) to the service(s) engaged with Project Checkpoint are in addition to the amount quoted and shall be charged to you as required. These costs will be itemised separately in the invoice.
The issued invoice is payable within 7 working days (if based in Australia) or 14 working days (if based outside of Australia) of receipt (from date on the invoice). If payment is not received within this period, Project Checkpoint reserves the right to charge a late payment fee of 10% for the first 21 days overdue and 20% thereafter. Unless an alternate payment term has been discussed and agreed with Project Checkpoint.
You (“your”, “client”, “individual”, “company”, “organisation”, “institution”) agree to pay Project Checkpoint any expenses incurred in collecting outstanding debts due by you to Project Checkpoint.
Changes in Scope
Any modifications to the original work brief during the course of execution will render changes to provided initial quote, and additional fees/charges may be applied to cover time and expenses. The new quote will need to be approved and revised deposit paid before work can restart.
It is in your interest to furnish Project Checkpoint with all the necessary information to provide services that meet your requirements. If the final output is rejected on the basis of scope, direction or our interpretation of your needs, amendments or circumstances, you are liable for the full cost of the initial quote.
If a contractual agreement is cancelled after written confirmation has been received, but before any work has commenced, we reserve the right to retain the AUD$50 administrative fee with no other payments required.
If it is cancelled after the completion of the first draft, we reserve the right to invoice the agreed fee in full.
A minimum of 5 days written notice is required to cancel any project management and grant optimisation services, for reasons other than dissatisfaction with our services and a minimum of 3 days written notice to cancel training workshops for reasons other than poor weather conditions.
Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreements
Please notify Project Checkpoint if you require us to sign a confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements you (“your”, “client”, “individual”, “company”, “organisation”, “institution”) deem necessary. This will require that you agree to indemnify me against any action whatsoever by you or a third party, associated with the accidental disclosure or loss of this information.
Project Checkpoint reserves the right to use selected projects as case studies resulting from our work with you (“your”, “client”, “individual”, “company”, “organisation”, “institution”) for self-promotion or advertising purposes unless specifically forbidden to do so by a confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement.
