Contract Review

SLCC Contract Review and Signatory Process

A contract is defined by SLCC policy:

Contract:  A contract is created by law when there is a mutual exchange of promises upon reasonably understandable terms and conditions.  For the purposes of this policy, the term contract is intended to mean a written form of communication.  Many types of documents can constitute a contract, including invoices, purchase orders, grants, agreements, memoranda and letters.

Contract Signatory Authority

The SLCC Contract Signatory Authority Policy states, in part:

No person is authorized to execute contracts on behalf of the College unless authority to do so has been granted by formal written authorization of the College President.

A master list of all official College designees and their general areas of contractual responsibilities will be kept in the Office of the President, the office of each Vice President and the Provost, the Office of Risk Management and will be made available to the College at large.
