Contact Officer: Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) or designate
The purpose of this procedure is to describe the process for entering into Academic Contracts.
Procedure - Organizational Unit
- Where applicable based on Contract value, if a need for an Academic Contract is identified, the department/Faculty must inform the Provost and VP Academic as early as possible in the process to ensure proper consultation is undertaken.
- Academic Contracts with a counter-party outside of Canada must be reviewed and approved by the International Office. If there is a research component involved, the International Office will work with the Office of the Vice-Principal Research as required. The International Office will prepare a memo documenting their review and approval of the Agreement.
- Proposals for new programs and changes to existing programs require internal approval by the Senate. New programs also require appraisal by the Quality council (QC) appraisal committee: Queen's University Quality Assurance Processes.
- Once all required approvals have been obtained, the Academic Contract must be executed in accordance with the Policy on Approval and Execution of Contracts and Invoices.
