You can use a Statement of Work to describe the deliverables or services required to fulfill a contract.
Use this Statement of Work to address:
- Scope of Work – describe the work to be done at a high level.
- Location – identify the location of hardware, software, and office space.
- Period of Performance – specify project duration, start & finish dates.
- Reporting – identify the reports you expect from vendors.
- Deliverables Schedule – list deliverables, including due dates.
The Statement of Work specifies high-level requirements, for instance, when an organization wishes to have work done, it develops a Statement of Work, possibly as part of a Request for Proposal. Vendors (i.e. prospective contractors) respond to this with their respective proposals.
You can also outline policies regarding Sensitive and Proprietary information, Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements, and Terms and Conditions.
