Signature Authority for Contracts

According to University policy, only the Treasurer of the University or that person’s designee has the authority to sign contracts on behalf of the University.

If you do not have a written delegation of authority from the Treasurer to sign contracts, you must either obtain such a delegation prior to signing the contract or send the contract to our office for review using our Contract Review Form before obtaining the Treasurer’s signature.

Contracts Involving Revenue Producing Activities (RPA)

A Revenue Producing Activity (RPA) is established when revenue is generated from the sale of products and/or services provided by the University and/or University employees. Pursuant to applicable University policy, all RPAs must be approved by the Revenue Producing Activity Committee (RPAC) before entering into an agreement. In order to have a RPA reviewed by the RPAC, please go to the University’s Online RPA System.
