Statement of Work—Template

The Statement of Work or requirements description should clearly describe the work to be carried out, the objectives to be attained and the time frame. It should be:

  1. explicit about the client's requirements and the contractor's responsibilities so that questions of interpretation can be avoided
  2. detailed enough to ensure that the Federal Government Department receives the services that it requires but, at the same time, flexible enough to permit innovation and initiative by the Contractor in the interests of the Federal Government Department. The Statement of Work should identify the specific stages of the work, their sequence, their relationship to the overall work in general and to each other in particular. The type, magnitude and complexity of the work will determine the degree of detail required

The following elements may be included as applicable:
