A contract is created at law when there is a mutual exchange of promises upon reasonably understandable terms and conditions. A contract does not have to be reduced to writing in order to be enforceable; however, for the purposes of this manual, the term contract is intended to mean a written form of communication. Please remember that many types of documents can constitute a contract, including invoices, memoranda and letters.
Your contract may be considered a sponsored project. Contact CONHIresearch@asu.edu for guidance.
Individual faculty and staff do not have signature authority for the University. Most documents that require a signature it will flow through the Provost Office, which Business Services will facilitate or ORSPA, which the ORS will facilitate.

Only certain ASU administrators have authority delegated from the President to sign specified ASU contracts pursuant to the ASU Contract Signature Authority Policy (PUR 202), or as otherwise authorized in writing by the President.
