Contracting Office

The Contracting Team is a part of Financial Services Purchasing that reviews, processes, supports, and oversees all University contracts not associated with a purchase order transaction, nor under the responsibility of Sponsored Projects and Contracting Services (SPCS) or the University of Arizona Health Science Contracts, 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 Team have delegated authority to draft, negotiate, process and sign contracts on behalf of the Arizona Board of Regents for the University of Arizona. This delegation comes from the Chief Procurement Officer through the President of the University. Unless specifically granted by the President or a designee, no other University department, faculty, or staff has this authority. Therefore, do not sign contracts. In doing so, you accept personal liability.

Please contact the Contracting Team for advice and assistance in developing, establishing, and coordinating agreements.
