Welcome to Business Contracts

Business Contracts provides professional support to the campus community by drafting and negotiating the appropriate contractual language in compliance with the By-Laws and Standing Orders of The Regents, University policies and procedures and guidelines obtained from the Office of General Counsel.

The University frequently enters into non-research business related contracts with various independent entities which may result in ongoing business or academic relations. The University is building partnerships, generating new knowledge and providing unique professional services through these business relationships. A well structured contract outlines the relationship between the parties and includes adequate provisions that are appropriate to the scope of work being performed or the service being provided.

The multiplicity of University knowledge compels the Business Contracts office to unify the process of creating and executing contracts under its delegation of authority. We seek to build an effective pipeline of information, with campus faculty and staff which support their innovative ideas and ultimately prepare students to pioneer career paths and share potential new technologies and ideas.
