Scope of Work

A simple scope of work example

Below you will find a scope of work example which was used for an infrastructure project and issued by the client to a contractor. This simple scope of work example comes pre-built with form fields which are tried and trusted across thousands of scope of work documents, and frameworks like this can be easily customised and adapted for your specific wants and needs.


The first thing you will notice about this SOW example is that it features the client and project information upfront, and that all of the important record keeping information.


The next section of this scope of work example is focused on defining and describing the project who's scope will be outlined.


In the example, you'll see there are sections about the project location, architect selection process and pre-design work completed to date, and of course the timeline of the project.


In order for any company to understand the project, they need to have this information. Timelines are an essential component of the SOW, because companies can then see the timeframes they are up against, and whether or not they can be adequately resourced during this time.


The next section of the SOW builds upon the previous section and dives into the details of deliverables and the actual scope of work. This section should feature milestone dates, as well as cost estimates and cost totals - which can quickly mean the difference between yes or no for a contractor or subcontractor.


Reinforcing the point above, it's critical that you are as explicit as possible with the details around the timeline and cost estimates. Companies understand that these things are somewhat flexible and variable, but the more detailed the better.
