These are two of the most common legal questions on campus. Whether it is a contract, quote, license, permit, authorization, attestation, lease, acknowledgement, invoice, amendment, MOU, proposal, birthday card, or any other document, there is a correct university signatory and a good reason behind it. Signature issues cause processing delays, and under Colorado law, CSU employees who improperly sign on behalf of the university are personally liable for the obligations or costs they incur. Learn how to avoid this and other signature issues, and how to help others in your office or department get documents executed quickly and properly.
Goals and Target Audience:
Attendees will learn about university signature authority, who they represent when they sign a document, how to avoid individual liability, the university signature process, electronic signatures, and signatures vs. approvals. There will be a question and answer period. The session is tailored for administrators and researchers.
