(Jan. 27, 2014) -- The UTSA Office of Business Contracts in the Department of Purchasing and Distribution Services is now more than ever your go-to office for business contracts.

Direct your questions to Business Contracts regarding completing, routing or processing service agreements, participant/speaker agreements, entertainer and artist agreements, interagency contracts, athletics agreements, software/technology agreements, hotel agreements and all other agreements that are not contracts for sponsored research or sponsored projects.

New routing requirements are now in effect. Send all business contracts being routed for execution to the Office of Business Contracts, Central Receiving Warehouse, Main Campus. With the new procedure, do not send contracts to the Office of the Associate Vice President for Administration. Once approved, Business Contracts will return the contract to the department with additional information to complete or manage the contract.

If the agreement was signed on behalf of UTSA before the other party signed, you will, as always, receive a note indicating that it is your responsibility to see that UTSA receives the fully executed agreement. Return the fully executed document, once received, to Business Contracts.

As always, all requests for goods and services exceeding $5,000, along with all software/technology agreements, must first be submitted via purchase request to the Purchasing Office to ensure compliance with competitive procurement policies. Departments are not authorized to issue a purchase order or use a procurement card for any purchase exceeding $5,000, nor issue a contract other than a purchase order in any amount.
