Delegated Signature Authority

The Purchasing Office protects University staff from personal risk by signing Procurement contracts in accordance with State statutes and University policy. Only staff who have received written delegation from the Procurement Director have the authority to sign purchasing documents for UWM, including supplier order forms and contracts. If you have a contract or order form which requires a signature, best practice is to submit that document as an attachment to a purchase requisition where it will be directed to the Purchasing Agent who can sign it.
