Service Agreements & Contracts

Buyer(s):
Melissa Gruhn

Description:

Service agreements and service contracts must come through Procurement Services on a requisition. These orders generally require a signature from a Procurement Services authority before they are executed.

Procurement Services attempts to obtain discounts when several service agreements are utilized with the same vendor. Procurement Services also sets up the agreements in the contract system to allow renewal reminders to be printed 90 days before the expiration of the contract. The ISU Procurement Card is not allowed for service agreements.

Procurement Procedure:

Submit a requisition with copies of the service agreement and any terms, conditions, or price quotes that are included. Create a requisition in Workday with any accompanying information about the requested purchase to Procurement Services (i.e. order form, quote, email from supplier, etc.). If you need assistance creating a requisition in Workday, email the information to finance_delivery@iastate.edu.
