Learn where to find the authority for your Agency to do work proposed by a partnership. Citing the Agency's authority is one element of all partnership agreements.

Consider your Agency's process and practice for developing a partnership agreement and identify who should be on your agreement team.

Consider the process, practice and advisors of the partner's decision-makers.

Discussion Questions:

1. List two sources for an authority that will support the work of a partnership.

2. Describe the development process and timeline of a partnership agreement associated with your work in partnership. What type of agreement is being used?

3. What is the life-span of most partnership agreements?

4. Who is responsible for managing the agreement once it is signed by agency and partner representatives?
