This paper first defines a format for capturing and distributing contributed resources called an eContract and then proposes an agreement protocol along with a simple distributed algorithm for negotiating the eContract in the context of dynamic collaborations. The insights gained from the analysis of the proposed negotiation algorithm lead us to the development of an efficient "message piggybacking" negotiation algorithm.
