In the course of setting up or managing international projects, it is often necessary or desirable to obtain professional advice or services from lawyers, accountants, payroll providers, and other professionals.
Any professional services requested by a school or college, or any request for services related to the University’s academic affairs, must first be approved in writing by the University Provost. All international professional services are to be approved in writing by the Vice President and Associate Provost for Global Programs.
The University’s Sourcing and Procurement Department is available to serve as a resource in the engagement of professional services. The University will not authorize payment of any fees for professional services unless they have been approved by the appropriate party.
