Tips for a successful contract process:

  • Review the contract or amendment to confirm all blanks are completed.
  • Obtain vendor’s signature on the contract, amendment or any other document provided by vendor that requires a signature.
  • Ensure documents listed under List of Attachments on our contract are included with your requisition.
  • Make sure the contract is signed by both parties before the start date on the contract.  A vendor cannot begin their services until the contract is signed by both parties and a Purchase Order is generated.
  • A contract cannot be amended if the end date on the contract has passed.
  • Don’t forget to provide the original signed contract when an amendment is required.

Please contact the Contract Specialist at 773-821-2162 if you have any questions or if you need assistance in preparing a contract or amendment before you submit to vendor.
