The University’s Standard Form Contracts
Legal and Risk maintains a library of Standard Form Contracts for certain types of arrangements that the University regularly enters into.
Each Standard Form Contract is drafted for a specific type of arrangement and will contain the particular terms and conditions relevant to that type of arrangement. The fact that it is "standard" does not mean it is a generic contract that is suitable for other types of arrangements.
The following Standard Form Contract templates can be downloaded for use by University personnel. Please refer to the relevant guidelines when using the templates. Further Assistance can be provided if you require amendments or other support.
