The Office of General Counsel (OGC) has created the following forms in an attempt to simplify and expedite the review and approval process for University contracts involving routine transactions. Use of the following form contracts will allow for speedier review and approval by the OGC; therefore, the OGC recommends using such contracts whenever possible. If an applicable form contract does not exist, you may alternatively request a separate contract form from the OGC or send a proposed contract form to the OGC for review.
