As a part of the University's commitment to high standards of ethical and professional conduct, the University of Rochester takes seriously its contractual obligations to donors, the government, suppliers and others.
In addition to observing all applicable laws, the University of Rochester will adhere to its contractual requirements and, unless they are excused, will fulfill its contractual obligations. In any instance where particular contractual or grant requirements are difficult to interpret or apply, University of Rochester staff and faculty should first consult with the department's senior administrator or the office that signed the grant or contract on behalf of the University. Additional assistance can be obtained from the Office of Research and Project Administration, the school/college Dean's office, the Controller's Office or University Audit, when applicable. Legal issues should be referred to the Office of Counsel.
