Where do I start?
Contracting at Berkeley can be confusing. There is a wide variety of contracts for different purposes and about a dozen campus offices who each manage different types of contracts.
To learn about the process of creating and maintaining legally binding Berkeley contracts and the roles of the various contracting offices on campus, you can access the first ever UC Berkeley Guide to Contracting on this webpage. It is a step-by-step guide to creating, amending, executing, and terminating contracts on the Berkeley campus.
Once you finish reviewing the guide, please click on the Contracting Offices Decision Tree above to find out which is the most appropriate office to help you with your specific contracting needs.
To provide you with information about key items BCBP staff look for in a contract, please review our protocol checklist.
By following these steps, you will have a better understanding of UC Berkeley’s contracting requirements and identify which contracting office will help you with your contracting needs. Going through this process will reduce the time needed to meet your unique contracting consulting, drafting, and approval needs.
