Office of the Controller
The Office of Contracts and Business Services works with departments to provide the following services:
Used here, “contracts” refers to any agreement to purchase goods or services for University use, including but not limited to: contracts, purchase orders, vendor agreements, leases, and MOU’s. This office reviews and negotiates all terms of sale with vendors and contractors to ensure they conform to State and University statutes, fiscal rules, and requirements. University employment/personnel contracts are handled by Human Resources.
For additional questions or concerns regarding Contracts, please contact our Program Assistant or Contracts Administrator.
The Manager of Contracts and Business Services acts as the liaison between the University and State Risk Management for claims related to general liability, University property loss, and third party injuries in MSU Denver buildings. We issue insurance certificates as needed to parties we are conducting business with. Any questions or claims should be directed to the Manager of Contracts and Business Services. All employee risk management issues, such as worker’s compensation claims, are handled by Human Resources.
