Based on this, the contractor produces agreed upon deliverables (works) for the client, but the cooperation is flexible on an order-by-order basis.

A description of how the collaboration will work and how much it should be fast and flexible or, on the contrary, formal and with a detailed description of all the conditions of the collaboration.
A framework contract that protects you from the "Švarcsystém" but does not close the door to functional business cooperation with contractors.
