In addition to making good business sense, a contract must also make good legal sense. It is in the University's best interest to have the contract undergo a thorough business review and a thorough legal review. You will negotiate contracts to obtain optimal terms and conditions, such as in price and service, and the General Counsel's office will negotiate contracts to obtain optimal legal terms, such as indemnification and jurisdiction. Board of Trustees policies designate when legal review and approval of contracts must be obtained. (Board Approved Policy, Section 4-1, Contracting Policy, Section 4-110)
If you wish to have a contract reviewed, or are required to do so, you may contact the General Counsel's office at 591-3894 for assistance.
