The Purchasing Department is the official University Contracting Agent. Purchasing and ultimately General Counsel should review all contracts according to bid thresholds: $25,000 for goods and $50,000 for services. If in doubt, assume the contract is for "goods" and contact Purchasing for assistance.

  • Independent Contractor Agreements are required for all individual contractors performing services at or for BGSU. Refer to the Purchasing website for Contracting Procedures and Forms.
  • ALL contracts and leases must be reviewed by the Director/Dean of the respective area. The Director/Dean will then ensure the contract is processed for approval in the appropriate manner, depending on the type of contract.
