Contracting

The purpose of this website is to provide information about the contracting process at the University and assist faculty and staff in negotiating and formalizing written contracts.

Whenever the University takes on an obligation to another party, a written agreement is the best way to prevent misunderstandings and problems. The provisions of the agreement may physically be contained in a variety of formats. Examples include preprinted contract forms (with or without modification), terms and conditions, purchase orders, letters containing the terms of an agreement, leases, and waivers.

Whatever the format, the agreement should comply with University contracting requirements in order to protect the University’s interests and ensure that the University does not assume inappropriate risks (like agreeing to pay another party in full regardless of performance). For certain transactions, the University has its own standard vendor service agreement, which provide the University with the greatest protection.

University employees, including officers, faculty and staff, may not bind the University by signing contracts. The only authorized signatories are the University President, the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and the Vice President for Finance.

Standard Contracts
