Coronavirus information

In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the University of Alaska Anchorage has taken steps to protect the health and safety of our campus community. Visit the University of Alaska Coronavirus Information website to learn how UAA and the university system are responding to this situation. Find links to communications, policy guidance, resources and information about the university's community restrictions, which apply to all faculty, staff and students. The UAA Student Health and Counseling Center remains open at this time to serve UAA students. For information about COVID-19 symptoms and current health recommendations, visit the CDC website and the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.

Short Form Contract: Miscellaneous Services


To expedite these types of agreements and to protect the University contractually, the University has a short form contract for miscellaneous services. The one page contract contains the many items to be agreed upon between the University and the service provider, including such things as the date of the engagement, compensation and terms of payment.

For these typically small dollar purchases, departments may download the contract, fill in the pertinent information and have the service provider sign. However, the contract is subject to final review by Procurement Services and must be signed by a University procurement officer prior to the engagement to be valid.

Short Form Contracts should not be used for services that exceed $5,000. For contracts greater than $5,000 total dollar value a professional services or non-personal contract should be issued by Procurement Services. See section on website Purchasing Policies and Procedures on professional and non-personal services contracts.

A purchase order funding the services must also accompany the contract.

To expedite contract issuance and payment, have the guest speaker or performer also complete IRS Form W-9 needed to certify their tax status and submit it with the short form contract to Procurement Services.
