Functions and Services
The CMS department creates, reviews, negotiates, and finalizes contracts and contract policies and procedures for the District. We draft the standard contract templates for use by the District and Colleges and maintain them in accordance with current law, regulations, and district policies. We draft new contracts on an as needed basis in accordance with current law, regulations and district policies as the need arises. We maintain a contract repository to ensure that we are not duplicating contracts amongst the colleges. We create, maintain, and evaluate the contracting process by the colleges to ensure that we are efficiently and effectively shepherding contracts from the moment a buyer/department member wants to purchase something via contract to moment the contract is signed. We maintain relationships with the campuses to remain abreast of the trends that each colleges are facing in an ever-changing legal environment and provide support as needed.
