Can I Sign a University Contract


Signature authority is a formal delegation that allows an individual to sign or otherwise enter into an agreement that legally binds the university to terms and conditions. This includes written contracts that bind or obligate the university to a financial or a non-financial commitment. Agreements signed by unauthorized employees or agents are not valid and do not bind the university.


The specific scope of signatory responsibility and limits of specific delegations are documented in the form of delegation letters and retained on file at the university Office of Compliance.
