7.6 Contracts with consultants

The procurement unit is responsible for all contracting of consultants who provide services to CARE.

The CO should have a standard contract for consultants, or contact their Lead Member for a sample if required. CARE USA’s standard contract for consultants outside the US may also be used, but should be reviewed by a local lawyer. This is available at Annex 12.1 Consultant Contract.  To complete the consultant contract, prepare a detailed TOR/Scope of Work to include detailed activities, time frame, costs involved, deliverables, payment terms and conditions.

For other advice or assistance with consultant contracts, contact the relevant Lead Member.
