Non P.O. contracts are contracts that do not require issuance of a Purchase Order. 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 Chief Procurement Officer (CPO). UM Procurement 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 Procurement 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 CPO 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 Procurement assists in preparation, negotiation, review, finalization and execution of Non P.O. contracts. UM Procurement 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. UM Procurement logs and tracks the progress of these contracts.
When all reviews are complete, the final contract is provided to the CPO or delegated Strategic Sourcing Specialist for execution.
The fully executed contracts are maintained by UM Supply Chain with additional copies sent to the sponsoring department for retention and further distribution.
