Contracts

Only individuals with approved delegation of authority are authorized to sign contracts. This authority is delegated by the President and filed in the Office of Finance & Administration.

Contracts must be prepared on forms approved by the State’s Office of Attorney General to assure that they include all state required contract language. Any modification of forms approved by the Office of Attorney General or the use of a non-system office form requires the review of the Office of Attorney General and approval of the Vice Chancellor-Chief Financial Officer.
