Contracts should be attached to a requisition if payment will be made by check or purchase order. Otherwise, they may be sent to email@example.com or sent directly to Wendy Spargo, Purchasing'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, Purchasing Services will arrange for signature by an official with a current delegation of signatory authority. For more information, please refer to the Procurement Matrix (pdf), Section 1 of the Contract Approval and Signatory Authority Policy, or the Procurement Policy.
