 +If the proposed purchase is a large one involving more than a few people and the agreement of the MHV Committee, it might be worth developing a **Funding Agreement** so that everyone is on the same page in terms of access, user rights and responsibilities and what happens if something doesn'​t work out as expected. ​ A draft Funding Agreement for the proposed [[purchase:​laser_cutter|Laser Cutter purchase]] is [[purchase:​laser_cutter:​laser_cutter_funding_agreement|here]] and it can be used as a model if it is suitable.
