Contract Review Process
Before any contract is signed, it must first be reviewed by the Office of the General Counsel. To submit a contract for review, please send it to Assistant General Counsel Bridget Colbert at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include any and all documents that are referenced and incorporated into the contract you wish to have reviewed. For example, if a purchase order states that it is subject to terms and conditions available on the company's website, please include the full text of the terms and conditions when submitting your contract for review.
The Office of the General Counsel strives to provide feedback on contracts within 10 business days. If you need to receive feedback on a contract in fewer than 10 business days, please include this information when submitting your contract. In some instances, it may not be possible to provide you with feedback within 10 business days. For this reason, the Office of the General Counsel requests that you submit contracts for review as early as possible. You will be notified if review of your contract will take longer than 10 business days.
Should you have any questions about the contract review process, please contact Assistant General Counsel Bridget Colbert at extension 2186 or email@example.com.
If your department or school is planning on entering into a business relationship with a third party (outside company, vendor, consultant, etc.), more often than not the third party will provide you with a contract for review. In some cases, the third party will ask the University to provide the contract. The Office of the General Counsel can assist you with defining key terms and drafting an agreement.
To initiate this process, please call Assistant General Counsel Bridget Colbert at extension 2186.
Below are links to form contracts that are available for use. If necessary, the Office of the General Counsel is available to revise these agreements.
