Contract Signature Authority

Important Notice

Northern Arizona University employees acting under authorized course and scope should not sign any document which waives their rights.

Only NAU’s President has authority to sign contracts on behalf of the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) unless that authority has been specifically delegated.  The link to the current list of authorized signers can be found on the home page of the Comptroller’s website.  Delegations are limited to specific contract types and dollar amounts.  If you do not have authority delegated as documented on the authorized signer list, you are not authorized to enter into, modify or cancel contractual relationships on behalf of NAU.  Failure to follow university policies regarding contracts may result in an employee's personal liability.
