Authority for signing contracts

Read our policy on delegated authority to sign contractual documents on behalf of the University.

It is the responsibility of those signing contractual documents to ensure that where appropriate (which will normally be in all cases unless a standard template is being followed) legal advice has been obtained and is in support of the documents being executed. Primary responsibility for retaining an original of all signed agreements rests with the originating department; for documents of particular importance to the University, the Legal Office should be given the original to hold in its safe.
