*Programs may consider working with a financial and/or legal specialist to develop agreements/contracts and any corresponding policies and procedures.  As a legal document, the agreement/contract protects all partners’ best interests.  To limit the number of pages in the partnership agreement, many partnership programs include an addendum that describes how the partnership conducts business.
