Standard form agreements typically require modification to tailor them to individual projects.

The information and model language in this guide is presented by issue, such as Insurance, and Standard of Care. This guide is not a standard form document. Model language is sometimes presented in several alternative versions, and some language presented may not be appropriate for a particular situation
