  • Contract Routing

    As a reminder, all university purchases over $3,500 are required to go through the requisition process to start business and legal review. This includes routing of contracts through the Office of the General Counsel.

    If you have a contract that requires a requisition, start by entering the requisition and including the Contract Submission Form with the attached backup. Procurement will review the contract for business terms and route it through OGC for legal review if required. OGC will then assign a lawyer and conduct the review, providing the department with its feedback.

    Contracts should not be sent to OGC directly unless a requisition is not required.
