Contract signature authority is required for an individual to sign any contract on behalf of
the university. No person may execute a contract or other written instrument obligating
the university or any of its units unless that person has been delegated signature authority
as set forth in this policy (“contract signature authority”). A valid delegation of contract
signature authority from the President or other university official listed herein provides
individuals with the authority to execute contracts with external entities on behalf of the
university. Individuals who enter into contracts without signature authority may subject
their departments or units to fines and themselves to disciplinary action up to and
including termination. Such individuals may also be personally liable under the contract.
