Master Service Agreements
Working With Existing Agreements
Master service agreements (MSAs) are contracts negotiated by Contract Administration that have the following characteristics:
- Master service agreements are no-cost contracts that contain the legal terms and conditions that will govern the transaction (good or service) between the supplier and the University;
- Master service agreements themselves do not obligate the University to make purchases;
- Master service agreements always allow any University department from any department/unit/college to order from the agreement;
- Almost always, the department order is processed by requisitioning a purchase order through a Jaggaer MSA-PO (this is the University’s preference) and the purchase order incorporates the terms and conditions of the respective master service agreement.
IMPORTANT: Jaggaer POs cannot be submitted through any other method outside of emailing JAGGAERPO@tcu.edu
