2.6.2 Addendum to Contract


Whenever the original contract between WSU and a non-WSU party is altered, the alteration is handled via the addendum process. Examples of these changes are:

  1. An extension of the time period.

  2. An expansion of the scope of the services.

  3. A change in the contract amount.


The appropriate university administrative officer is defined in University Policy 2004-6, Contract Signatories. The addendum must have the same signatures as dictated by University Policy 2004-6.  For example, specific contracts under $25,000 may be signed by the appropriate Dean/Director; whereas, contracts for $25,000 or more require the signature of the Director of Purchasing and/or the Treasurer.  If the original contract was for less than $25,000 and the addendum raises the contract to $25,000 or more; then the signatures required for the addendum are the same as those required for a contract of $25,000 or more. If the contract was originally $25,000 or more, the addendum requires the same level of signatures as the original contract.


Procedures for the addendum process are identical to the process for the original contract. See sections 2.3.4, 2.5 and 2.6.1 as appropriate.
