Contracting Authority

Contracting authority on Campus is derived from a CSU Trustees delegation to the Chancellor who delegates authority to each campus President who in turn delegates within the campus. Delegation of Authority 775 delegates the Acquisition of Personal Property and Services to only duly authorized contracting and procurement personnel.

Contract Approval Policy

All Contractual agreements which would bind California State University, Sacramento must be reviewed by the Contract Administration Section of Procurement and Contract Services.  This review is required regardless of monetary considerations.  Proposed contracts and/or agreements and subsequent changes to contracts and/or agreements must be submitted to Procurement & Contract Services for review and coordination of agreement approval. 

(Agreements associated with a CFS requisition/purchase order should be forwarded to the Procurement and Contract Services Staff member assigned that requisition.)
