    Reason for Policy

    Entering into a contract exposes Adelphi University resources and University employees themselves to certain statutory and legal risks because all contracts create legally binding obligations. It is imperative that employees intending to enter into a contract with outside parties adhere to established procedures in order to protect Adelphi University and themselves against this risk exposure.
