Bureau Standard Form of Agreement for Digital Services

February 13, 2018 | 11:00 AM

We’ve all done the best we can to create contracts and agreements that protect us while describing the services we offer. But let’s be honest, it ain’t easy. Many of us are working with large companies that force boiler plate language on us that isn’t relevant. Or we are working with a local lawyer that doesn’t really understand digital services. 

A frustrated web search had us using the AIGA Design Services Agreement. It wasn’t perfect but it was a place to start. But now there is a better option.

Earlier this year, a conversation took place in the Bureau Slack community where there was a strong desire for a standard services agreement for digital firms. Gabe Levine and Josh Barrett heeded the call and got to work creating the Bureau Standard Form of Agreement for Digital Services.

In this Owner Summit exclusive, Gabe and Josh will present this inaugural version contract which will focus on web design and CMS level development. Attendees will be the first to have access to this long overdue resource.
