Speakers, Entertainers, and Performing Artists

(Excluding Independent Contractors)

In most cases, speakers, entertainers and artists will supply contracts to the university. These typically include special terms and conditions, which are addressed by the Speaker Addendum found on Procurement's Forms page.  If the artist and/or their agent/agency agree to the terms of the addendum without any changes and sign the addendum, we can accept their contract as written. If any changes are requested, the addendum must be reviewed in advance by Procurement.

If you are having a speaker/entertainer come to campus that is not submitting W&M with a contract, please use the Speaker Short Form which is also found on Procurement's Forms page.
