Format of Board Resolution to enter into Contract or Agreement

board resolution for authorisation to enter into agreement
In a company, the actions taken up by any person, on behalf of the company, should be backed by some kind of authorisation that is given to him.

No director or officer or employee is at liberty to do anything on their own will without either having an authorisation for it or taking prior approval for it or getting their actions ratified after starting or completing the work.

Likewise, in order to execute an agreement or negotiate for it, on behalf of the company, a director / officer should be given an authorisation by passing of a board resolution in this regard.

Templates of such board resolution are as follows:—

SAMPLE #1
(common authorisation for signing several contracts)

“RESOLVED THAT (Name of the Officer), (Designation) be and is hereby authorised to enter into all the contracts with the clients, suppliers and any other parties as may be necessary in relation to the ............... product or services of the company.
