Outside Vendors and Contracts

Outside Vendors & Contacts

Contracts between individual students or student organizations and outside vendors/contractors must be reviewed by Yale’s Procurement office before the contracts are signed. Once the contract is approved the Procurement office will sign the contract.  Student organizations should not sign contracts.

All vendors hired by registered organizations (including, but not limited to, performers, caterers, and equipment rental companies) must provide proof of $2 million in liability insurance prior to performing any work or providing any service. Yale University must be named as an additional insured. The Office of Enterprise Risk Management can recommend a method of obtaining the proper insurance if an outside vendor does not carry it. Details can be found here.
