Contract Approval Process

If a department has a supplier's quote that mentions terms and conditions or if it is a supplier’s contract and it has not previously reviewed, it must be reviewed by the Office of General Counsel. We will coordinate this review. Follow the process below:

  1. Enter a requisition into WrightBuy.
  2. Attach the contract or quote needing reviewed in internal notes.
  3. Make a comment that this needs reviewed.

Contract services will use the requisition number to track the contract and will add comments along the review process to keep the department updated. If a requisition does not need to be entered, then please e-mail it to
