Love it. I'm fine with including or referring to the functional requirements with a formal signoff as Matt noted as well. I actually suggested that we do a contract. I believe she grabbed a generic contract off the internet and contoured it to our needs. Of course it includes about 10 vanilla legal clauses that would take a team of attorneys to interpret. Due diligence. Thank you both.
