Areas of Responsibility

Every contract entered into by the College should be drafted so as to accurately reflect the respective expectations and responsibilities of the parties in a manner that is clear and concise. The contract should contain no terms that are unlawful, improper, or unwise for the College. In addition, all contracts present potential problems in contract administration and enforcement.

For this reason, certain types of contracts must undergo review by certain offices. These offices include: Office of Procurement, Office of Sponsored Programs, Office of Administration, Office of Technology Transfer and University Counsel. This review ensures that university's contracts comply with the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth of Virginia and also protects The College and its employees from exposure to liability.
