Washington State University Contracts Office

The Contracts Office is a branch of the Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration. We are responsible for drafting, reviewing, negotiating, and executing business and administrative contracts for the University, including satellite its campuses. For more information about how to process University contracts, please refer to BPPM 10.11, email contracts.intake@wsu.edu, or call our office directly at (509) 335-7223.

We work directly with the WSU client department, and with non-WSU entities to include private organizations, other educational institutions, public agencies, and legal professionals in representing the University in the contracting process.  We do not represent Washington State University in a legal capacity.

While working in tandem with other resources within the University (i.e. the Attorney General’s Office, ORSO, Commercialization) we process a variety of contracts including but not limited to:

  • Interagency/Interlocal Agreements in accordance with RCW 39.34, Interlocal Cooperation Act.
  • Cooperative Agreements
  • Entertainment Agreements (Beasley Coliseum)
  • Client Services Agreements
  • Student Affiliation/Internship Agreements
  • Facility Use Agreements for both WSU and non-WSU facilities
  • Data Use Agreements
  • Licensing Agreements
