2.6.2 Addendum to Contract (Revised 01/31/13)

DESCRIPTION

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.

POLICY

The appropriate University administrative officer is defined in University Policy 04-6, Contract Signatories. The addendum must have the same signatures as dictated by University Policy 04-6. 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 or Assistant Vice President of PASS and/or the CFO. 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.

PROCEDURE

Procedures for the addendum process are identical to the process for the original contract. See sections 2.3.4, 2.5 and 2.6 as appropriate.
