Work awarded to Digital Marketplace sellers will be on the basis of the Master Agreement. Each award will form a separate contract between the government buyer and the successful seller. This is called a work order and it will contain specific details of the work to be provided including the cost. More complex awards, and 'as-a-service' awards, may need additional terms and conditions. The Master Agreement allows for these additions within a work order.
