Which University Office to Approach for Services Agreements
Originally posted in 2009
The Office of Research and the Purchasing Services Department have been working together for several months in order to provide the University community with guidance explaining which office should handle particular types of agreements. The two offices have developed a document for you to use entitled “Agreements for Goods of Services under External or University-funded Research – Which University Office to Approach for Assistance”. This document is posted on the websites of both the Office of Research (www.pitt.edu/~offres/) and the Purchasing Services Department (www.bc.pitt.edu/purchasing/tools.html). REVISED LINK -2012.
Please review this document and familiarize yourself with it. As of August 1, 2009 the Office of Research and the Purchasing Services Department will be more closely adhering to the guidelines as stated in the document, thus agreements previously processed by one of these offices may now be handled by the other.
