Contract Review

Procurement Contracts (contracts for the purchase or lease of goods or services) must be submitted to Procurement Services or the Office of the General Counsel for review prior to execution.  Procurement Contracts include quotations, order forms, or similar documents containing narrative provisions governing the terms and conditions of the purchase.

Contracts should be attached to a requisition if payment will be made by check or purchase order. Otherwise, they may be sent to or sent directly to Procurement's Contract Analyst. The Contract Analyst reviews contracts using protocols recommended by the Office of the General Counsel and the Department of Risk Management.

If a signature is required on a procurement contract, Procurement Services will arrange for signature by an official with a current delegation of signatory authority. For more information, please refer to the Procurement Matrix (Excel doc), Section 1 of the Contract Approval and Signatory Authority Policy (PDF), or the  Procurement Policy (PDF).
