In very broad terms, an enabling agreement or enabling contract, is similar to a handshake agreement, in that an exchange is agreed upon by the parties to the agreement (such as for the supply of goods or services in exchange for payment), which sets out the very broad terms, but detailed terms are not specified.
Detailed terms are set out in a subsequent (or parallel) contract, to which the terms in the enabling agreement are an addition.
