Master Service Agreements

Working With Existing Master Service Agreements

Master service agreements are contracts negotiated by Contract Administration that have the following characteristics:

  • Master service agreements are no-cost contracts that contain the legal terms and conditions that will govern the transaction (good or service) between the supplier and the University;
  • Master service agreements themselves do not obligate the University to make purchases;
  • Master service agreements always allow any University department from any department/unit/college to order from the agreement;
  • Almost always, the department order is processed by requisitioning a purchase order through a Jaggaer MSA-PO (this is the University‚Äôs preference) and the purchase order incorporates the terms and conditions of the respective master service agreement.

This quick reference guide provides an overview of generating a PO using the MSA-PO form available in Jaggaer. Once an invoice related to an MSA-PO is received follow these next steps. IMPORTANT JAGGAER POs CANNOT BE SUBMITTED THROUGH ANY OTHER METHOD OUTSIDE OF EMAILING JAGGAERPO@tcu.edu
