With effect from 1st January 2022, Digital Public Services Switzerland (DPSS) took over all operating activities of the Swiss Conference on Informatics (SIK/CSI) that are needed to manage existing framework agreements and undertakings on terms and conditions. When drawing up new framework contracts, the DPSS Office performs the preparatory work up to signature of the contract by the SIK/CSI.
Contract templates for ICT services
Digital Public Services Switzerland provides its members with a set of contract templates for ICT services.
These contract templates are aimed at both service procurers and service providers. They are aligned with the current SIK/CSI general terms and conditions. The offer includes guidelines and checklists, as well as contract templates for contracts for works and services, ICT services, hardware purchases, software licences, and hardware and software maintenance.
The guidelines describe how the contract templates can be used and further adapted. Checklist I explains which contract template is recommended for each planned ICT-related legal transaction. This document makes it easier to choose the appropriate contract template.
Checklist II allows the selection of additional clauses and special provisions that are not already covered by the contract templates. The suggestions are limited to important clauses and special provisions that are already mentioned as possible add-ons or deviations in the SIK/CSI general terms and conditions.
