A revised Contract Owner Process, simplified and more clearly stating all responsibilities, is set to take effect June 1. The changes arose from a review within Purdue's Procurement Process Transformation that cited a need to amend and clarify these responsibilities.
The new Contract Ownership Form lists responsibilities for Procurement Services, the contract relationship owner, and the Business Office. A summary of responsibilities of each participant is here.
Contract ownership responsibilities assigned under the previous process will be modified to this new simplified process. The contract routing sheet will be used to advise the responsible parties in this way:
1. The "Contract Relationship Owner" will be on the approval routing sheet.
2. The Contract Relationship Owner will approve the contract and acknowledge the role of the Contract Relationship Owner.
