Dear Colleagues,

The Office of Research & Economic Development (RED) and Business & Financial Services (BFS) are pleased to announce a new resource available to the campus community called "UCR's Contracting Guide" and would like to thank and acknowledge the many campus stakeholders that contributed content to the guide.  The guide is designed to assist campus personnel (i.e. administrators, staff, faculty, and researchers) understand the general process of creating, managing, and terminating legally binding contracts.  This guide is modeled after the UC Berkeley Guide to Contracting (2015) with updates specific to the UC Riverside's contracting environment.  The guide includes important information about the campus offices with the delegated authority to develop and execute such agreements on behalf of The Regents of the University of California (aka "contracting offices").  Please take a few minutes to review the material for future references.

BFS and RED will be hosting a virtual meeting to answer questions about information contained in the guide on Monday, March 22, 2021 1:30 PM.  Please register for the New UCR Contracting Guide - Virtual (Q&A) Meeting <https://redit.ucr.edu/OrApps/Org/OrgEvents/Default.aspx?g=inc> by March 21, 2021 on the Researcher Administrators INC Events/Meetings webpage to receive the Zoom meeting invite.  Please submit questions about the guide in advance of the meeting to buscon at ucr.edu<mailto:buscon at ucr.edu>

The goal of the guide is to provide a helpful resource to ensure campus agreements are properly executed, include protections for everyone involved in the agreement, and are signed by the proper authority. Please ensure to incorporate this guide into your unit's standard operating procedures and share this information with the appropriate individuals in your unit.

General questions about the guide can be directed to buscon at ucr.edu<mailto:buscon at ucr.edu>
