Non P.O. Contracts
Non P.O. contracts are contracts that do not require issuance of a Purchase Order and are not administered by Procurement. Examples of these contracts are consulting agreements, speaker/lecturer agreements, licensing contracts, and collaborative agreements.
CAMPUS NON-P.O. CONTRACTS
Most Non P.O. contracts are processed through the appropriate campus Business Services office. Some of the campus contracts require execution by the Assistant Vice President of Management Services (AVP). UM Business Services receives these contracts, reviews them, and logs and tracks them as they are reviewed by the General Counsel's Office, Risk and Insurance Management, and any other departments that should be involved.
As needed changes are identified, UM Business Services works with representatives of campus Business Services offices to revise and finalize the contracts. When all reviews are complete, the contract is provided to the AVP for execution.
The fully executed contracts are returned to the campus Business Services Office for distribution and retention in their files.
SYSTEM NON-P.O. CONTRACTS
For System offices, UM Business Services assists in preparation, negotiation, review, finalization and execution of Non P.O. contracts. UM Business Services works with System departmental contacts to prepare and review drafts, circulate drafts for review by the General Counsel's Office, Risk & Insurance Management, and any other departments that should be involved. Business Services logs and tracks the progress of these contracts.
When all reviews are complete, the final contract is provided to the AVP or Director for UM Business Services for execution.
The fully executed contracts are maintained by UM Business Services, with additional copies sent to the sponsoring department for retention and further distribution.
