Contract Administration: New initiative to update policies, streamline process

The OE2C project has identified Contract Administration as the next initiative. The Contract Administration initiative team will seek to update risk policies to streamline the contracting process and to create a prioritization system for contract requests. These actions will help individuals understand how the contracting process works and create more transparency of the time required.

Dean David Chard of the Simmons School of Education & Human Development and Dr. Thomas Tunks, Professor of Music and former SMU Associate Provost, will lead the initiative. Project team members are being identified and the team expects to kick off in early September.
