We have created standardized “NEEDDA Approved” contract documents that are intended to serve as a resource for firms delivering environmental and engineering due diligence services and their clients.
Below are sample contract document templates. If you are interested in obtaining these documents for use in your contracts, please contact us. For FAQs regarding these contract documents, visit the About Us page.
NEEDDA Sample Master Services Agreement Template - Standard MSA for multiple assignments for repeat clients- to be used when the client doesn’t have their own MSA template
NEEDDA Sample Terms and Conditions - To be attached to and incorporated into due diligence proposals
NEEDDA Sample Additional Terms and Conditions - A simple one-page addition in the case of a client-designed contract, addressing only the main risk transfer clauses
NEEDDA Sample Reliance Letter Template - Traditional reliance letter for your client’s lender or borrower, etc.
NEEDDA Sample Non-Reliance Letter Template - For use where you allow a third party to receive a copy of your report for information purposes only, but do not grant reliance. It also contains a clause regarding the fact that the date of the on-site assessment is beyond the 180-day period prescribed in the ASTM standard, and thus does not meet ASTM or AAI.
