Model Direct Service Provider Agreement
A direct service provider is a person, company, agency, district, or other entity that provides a service or services to a jurisdiction, pursuant to a contract or other written agreement. Examples include waste haulers, landscape contractors, school districts, and anyone with a written agreement to procure compost and/or other products on behalf of an affected jurisdiction. Affected jurisdictions will need to require, through a written contract or agreement, that the direct service provider procure recovered organic waste products and provide written documentation of such procurement to the jurisdictions. To count toward a jurisdiction’s procurement requirement, direct service provider agreements must be executed in advance of the procuring of the product. This model direct service provider agreement includes requirements to ensure that a jurisdiction will be provided SB 1383-eligible compost and/or mulch as well as all the necessary documentation for compliance with SB 1383.
