Office of General Counsel

Contract Signature Authority

Only the President of ASU has signature authority for contracting, unless that authority has been specifically delegated pursuant to the ASU Contract Signature Authority Policy (PUR 202). These delegations are limited to specific contract types and dollar amounts. Please refer to this policy and the list of signature authority delegations whenever you have a question about the appropriate administrator to approve a contractual relationship. If the position you hold has not been delegated signature authority under this policy, you are not authorized to enter into contractual relationships on behalf of ASU. Failure to follow university policies on contracts may result in an employee's loss of insurance coverage and personal liability (A.R.S. 35-154) .

The signature authority delegated to the positions below does not include the right to sign contracts granting exclusive rights, which contracts must be approved in advance by the President’s Executive Committee.

Contracts for the purchase of goods and services should be referred to Purchasing and Business Services. Contracts related to a grant or sponsored project must be administrated through the Office of Research and Sponsored Projects Administration (ORSPA). Contracts for the use of Public Events facilities (Gammage Auditorium, Sun Devil Stadium, Wells Fargo Arena, Kerr Cultural Center) must be administered by ASU Gammage/ASU Public Events (as approved by ASU Public Affairs), except for sporting event contracts for Sun Devil Stadium and Wells Fargo Arena, which are administered through Sun Devil Athletics.

If you have questions after referring to the relevant policy, please contact the Office of General Counsel.
