University & State Required Provisions for Contracts

General Information

There are certain State and University Required Provisions that, with very few exceptions, must be included in every contract ASU enters into. Also referred to as Supplemental Terms and Conditions, the provisions are available from Office of General Counsel.

These provisions may be included directly into the agreement, or may be incorporated by reference by attaching a copy of the Provisions to the agreement, and adding a paragraph in the agreement that reads: "The State of Arizona and Arizona State University Provisions attached as Exhibit X are incorporated by reference."

For an explanation of the source and use of these provisions, refer to the information below.


If you encounter any problems or questions with regard to the provisions, please contact OGC.
