Contracting Office

The Contracting Office, as part of Procurement & Contracting Services, reviews, processes, supports, and oversees all University contracts not associated with Purchasing, Sponsored Projects, or the Office of Research and Contract Analysis (ORCA), in a diligent and professional manner to ensure that they:

  • are in the University’s best interest
  • conform to current University policies
  • conform to current Arizona Board of Regents policies
  • comply with Arizona State law

while maintaining a successful working relationship with outside vendors, their legal counsel, and University departments.

The Contracting Office professionals have delegated authority to draft, negotiate, and sign contracts on behalf of the Arizona Board of Regents for the University of Arizona. This delegation comes from the Director of Procurement and Contracting Services through the President of the University. Unless specifically granted by the President or a designee, no other University of Arizona department, faculty, or staff has this authority.

Please do not sign contracts. If you sign a contract or agreement for your department, you are accepting personal liability for any of the contract terms. Please contact the Contracting Office if a contractor has asked you to sign a contract or any other type of written document.

Contact the Contracting team for advice and assistance in developing and coordinating agreements.
