    Re: "Responsible Party" in contracts

    I'm wondering if anyone has advice on how to ensure that you have an authorized company representative signing the web development agreement. I suppose it could be construed that any company employee who signs a contract will be binding that company to the contract, and I haven't had any problems in this regard yet. But you never know.

    How do you approach this? Do you have some specific wording in your contracts to deal with this?

    Have the owner, Managing Director or CEO sign the contract.

    I always look up the corporate records or DNB file to see who the principals/directors are, then make sure one of them is signing.

    For a NPO (in the US), the president of the board of directors is usually the one empowered to sign contracts and NOT the executive director.

    Otherwise, see above.

    You might take a look at All Business for some ideas on contracts. Once you have it written, ask your attorney to review it and use it as your boiler plate agreement.

    You can also consider placing a space for title on there so if you have questions / concerns - they can be addressed (if they put employee )
