This online version is for convenience; the official version of this policy is housed in the University Secretariat. In case of discrepancy between the online version and the official version held by the Secretariat, the official version shall prevail.

Approving Authority: Board of Governors

Original Approval Date: June 21, 2012

Date of Most Recent Review/Revision: November 24, 2016

Administrative Responsibility: Office of the President

Parent Policy: Signing Authority Policy (5.7)

The specific approval and signing authorities and limits for contracts executed by University employees and designated signing officers are as defined and prescribed in these procedures. The designated signing officers of the University include the Chair of the Board of Governors (“Chair”), the Vice-Chair(s) of the Board of Governors (“Vice-Chairs”), President and Vice-Chancellor (“President”), and Vice-Presidents who have approval and signing authority for all contracts within and below the dollar threshold of their approval and signing authority. Other University employees have authority to approve and sign contracts binding the University only as specifically set out in this Appendix A. Approval may be provided electronically.

Signing Authority of President and Vice-Presidents

Subject to section 4.02(b) and 4.03 of Policy 5.7, all contracts with a value of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) or more must have prior approval of the Board of Governors by way of a Board approved resolution. Following Board approval, such contracts must be signed by two Board Designated Signing Officers (i.e. Chair, Vice-Chair(s), President and Vice-Presidents).

Any one of the President and Vice-Presidents has signing authority for all contracts of a value up to $500,000. All contracts of a value between $500,001 and $1,000,000 must be signed by two individuals with signing authority, who include the Board Designated Signing Officers and such other signing authorities as may be prescribed in this Appendix A.

Contract Signing Procedures

Where a Vice-President or Assistant/Associate Vice-President is signing a contract, the VP or AVP with functional responsibility over the subject matter of the contract should be the signatory of the contract (e.g. Provost and Vice-President, Academic should sign any contracts addressing academic matters or academic services).

The actual disbursement of funds is completed once all the signing authority procedures have been met. These payments may be made electronically or by electronically signed cheques. Payroll Services and Accounts Payable have specific procedures to ensure proper internal controls which are reviewed by auditors and revised as appropriate from time to time.

All contracts, as defined in Policy 5.7 (section 2.01) and this Appendix A, must be in writing and signed by the appropriate designated signing authority as set out in this Appendix A. If a Signing Authority is unavailable, contracts must be signed by a higher signing authority. As set out in Policy 5.7 (section 4.05) only the President and Vice-Presidents may delegate signing authority for the duration of an absence.

Prior to signing any contract, the Signing Authority must complete a sufficient review of the agreement to be satisfied that the terms and conditions in the contract comply with applicable University policies and procedures, meet approved program or operational requirements and are within approved budgets.
