Master Services Agreement

If a contract is required, it must be executed by you and Splunk prior to performing any services. This is an overarching agreement. After you have signed the contract, business-specific statements of work (SOWs) and/or purchase orders (POs) will be required.

Security and data privacy

Splunk provides the leading unified security and observability platform. It helps organizations use data at any scale to become more secure and resilient so they can innovate with speed and agility. On the supplier management side, we believe it is imperative to adopt strong privacy and security practices that are critical to our mission, essential to customer trust, and required by law in several jurisdictions. The standards captured in Splunk’s privacy and security policies reflect our values as a company, and extend to suppliers who handle Splunk data on our behalf.

Purchase orders

All spend transactions will require an approved purchase order (PO) from Splunk Sourcing. Approvals are only initiated when the contract is finalized. Once the PO is fully approved, Splunk will route the contract for signature(s). You will also receive a copy of the PO to the email address provided during the supplier onboarding process.

Splunk suppliers are advised not to deliver goods and/or perform services without an approved purchase order and/or signed contract.

Contract signatures

Splunk Sourcing will route contracts for signatures (if no contract exists) to Splunk and supplier signatories when the purchase request has been approved.

Splunk supplier contracts can be signed only by authorized signatories. For additional clarification, please contact the Splunk Sourcing and Supplier Management team at
