  • Contracts Team

    The JHURA Contracts group aims to review and negotiate agreement terms and conditions balancing timeliness with the need to remain consistent with the policies and objectives of the University. Each Contracts Associate has a portfolio of schools, centers and units and negotiates a variety of agreements falling within their portfolio. Each Associate works closely with departmental administrators, staff, and faculty, to ensure the agreement complies with the intent of those doing the research or work and University policies. Given the complexity, Associates often work closely with other University offices prior to finalizing the agreements. Contact your departmental JHURA representative with any questions or concerns.
