OCA is expanding!
After 12 years exclusively at the HSC campus, we are expanding! The Office of Contract Administration (OCA) is merging into a UNT System Office. OCA supports the mission and values of the UNT System and its member institutions by facilitating business contract review, processing, routing, and administration for UNT System Administration, UNT, UNT Health Science Center, and UNT Dallas in a professional and timely manner, in accordance with State of Texas Laws and institutional policies. This includes, but is not limited to compliance review, analysis, and support for appropriate changes to contracts. Our goal is to create an informative, welcoming, and user-friendly platform to help you with business contracts.
The Office of Contract Administration will:
- Review and process business/service/purchasing/revenue contracts
- Assist with business contract negotiations (as needed)
- Facilitate routing of contracts to contract completion/execution
- Provide contract training
- Perform random and planned file/contract reviews of executed contracts/agreements for compliance and/or monitoring
- Maintain electronic records of business contracts through Database Management
- Post all contracts for the purchase of goods or services from a private vendor; unless they meet a criteria for exemption
