This free statement of work template (SOW template), can be used to set out the scope, timeline, milestones, targets, budget, payment schedule and deliverables for a project.
Similar to a project plan, an SOW is often used in the field of project management as a framework on which to build the details of a project. Both the supplier and the customer should agree to the SOW before commencing work, as it acts as a legally binding agreement of deliverables.
How to prepare a statement of work
When creating a statement of work you first need to consider whether there is already a contract in place, which sets out any specific requirements or format for a statement of work.
The headings in this document cover the key areas of a standard SOW. If you do not have a pre-existing agreement in place you can use these headings as a structure. These heading cover the following areas;
- Introduction and context
- Scope of works / project scope
- Project delivery
- Project support
- Payment terms
