Contract Administration


UT System's Office of General Counsel Resources

The Office of General Counsel manages the legal affairs of the UT System and provides legal services that help its clients react with agility to opportunities and risks.

“Standard Contracts” are forms developed and approved by the Office of General Counsel (OGC) pursuant to UT System Policy UTS145.  Using a “Standard Contract” form will expedite UT System review and approval. OGC review is not required for “Standard Contracts” unless substantive changes are made to the “Standard Contract” form.  Non-substantive changes to a “Standard Contract” form do not require OGC review.  Changes to the names of parties, amount of consideration, date, and term are examples of “non-substantive changes.”

See Submitting a Contract for UTT's contract submission procedures. All contracts are approved by the Office of Legal Services.
