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.
