The University Contracts team oversees the contract review process and administers the Contract Management System (CMS), which serves as the central repository for UAB's contracts. Departments are responsible for entering the contract information into CMS, along with the requested contract and all other necessary documents (e.g., departmental routing sheet and other supporting documents, such as a Vendor Disclosure Statement, if applicable).

University Contracts will then coordinate the central review of the contract in order to be signed by the appropriate board signatory. Individual faculty members and employees are not authorized to sign on behalf of the University, or to bind the University in any manner. Individuals who are not authorized, and who enter into an unauthorized agreement, may be held personally liable for the cost of the goods or services purchased.
