Additional Contracting Resources
The Standard Contracts page contains University-approved model contracts that can be used/adapted for your contracting needs.
The Checklists page contains the Contract Provisions Checklist (which outlines important provisions that should be included in most University contracts and provides tips for negotiating provisions that protect the University) as well as specialized checklists developed for particular types of University transactions.
Contract Provisions and Explanations provides explanations and model provisions for some of the most important provisions that should be included in University contracts, such as provisions regarding payment terms, termination, insurance, indemnification, warranty, intellectual property, confidentiality, and tax exemption. The explanations present background on what the provisions mean, how they serve to protect the University’s interests and why they are ordinarily required in University contracts.
The Transaction Authority Contact Sheet lists common University transactions and the department responsible for each type of transaction. The contact sheet also contains contact information for persons in the responsible department who can assist you with your contracting needs. If you cannot find your transaction on the contact sheet, please contact University Counsel Yoo-Kyeong Kudo (8-7789), or General Counsel Peter McDonough (8-2511) in the Office of the General Counsel for guidance on where to go. Additional transaction authority resources can be found on the transaction authority project website.
