Contracts

What is a WSU Contract?

A contract is an agreement between WSU and another party creating obligations that are enforceable or otherwise recognizable at law. Contracts require detailed terms and conditions addressing each party’s responsibilities and the nature of the work involved. The agreement must be approved by appropriate University officials and signed by a University officer who has received written delegated authority from the Board of Regents or the President to sign such agreements (see BPPM 10.10).

All non-grant related WSU contracts are maintained in the Controller’s Office. Common examples of WSU contracts maintained in Accounts Payable are: installment purchases, leases, rentals, maintenance agreements, personal services or performance agreements.
