All contracts, whether monetary or not, where the College is a party must be reviewed by the Office of General Counsel (OGC) or its designee before it can be executed on behalf of the College. In order to review, all contracts must be submitted via the Contract Review Form.
Before submitting a contract for review, the contract or agreement must have been approved by the Vice President of your area. You must also get the approval of the director, dean or vice president of other affected areas if applicable. For example, if a department wants to implement new software, they must get approval from the Director of ITS. This will ensure that it is properly budgeted and approved in all cases before it is reviewed by the OGC's office. All approvals must be in writing and attached to the Contract Review Form.
Please be advised that the review process is typically 7-10 business days, so it is important to plan accordingly. Additionally, only the CFO or President can sign contracts on behalf of the College. The approval emails from the Vice President and the General Counsel must be attached.
