Amending a Contract
Contract amendments require sign off by the Office of Research Services or the Office of Collaborations and Partnerships. The same process for review and negotiation (if required) is followed for amendments as for contracts.
A contract amendment may be initiated by the researcher or by the sponsor. The office responsible for negotiation of the original contract (ORS or OCP) is to be engaged in the amendment process as soon as it is known that an amendment is required. If the amendment is researcher initiated, ORS will coordinate submission of the request for amendment to the sponsor. Approvals of the researcher as well as that of the Department Head and Faculty are required prior to submission of the request for amendment.
