Any form of financial contract, whereas NYU Steinhardt will become financially liable for making payment, needs to be signed by the FO prior to be the work or service being performed.
To submit a contract or agreement requiring Fiscal Officer (FO) signatory approval, please fill out the Contracts and Agreements Requiring FO Signature form.
Please allow 72 hours for the request to be processed, at which time the Steinhardt Finance team will send an email with the signed agreement attached.
Once the agreement/contract is signed, a member of the Steinhardt Finance team will send an email with the signed agreement attached to the requestor.
Examples of Contracts that require FO Signature
- Consultant Agreements
We have granted the department administrator (DA) the ability to sign statement of works (SOW) but the consultant agreement must be signed by the FO.
- External (Outside NYU) Space Rental
- Licensing Agreements
- Multi-Year Contracts
For further information or if you are uncertain of contract signature authority please contact the Steinhardt Finance team at email@example.com for assistance.
