Business and Financial Policies and Procedures

19.2.2 Non-Standard Contracts

Policy Statement

Non-Standard Contracts are custom contracts, other party agreements, or altered Standard Contract Templates. Non-Standard Contracts may be used when use of an unaltered Standard Contract Template is not feasible.

Reason for the Policy

For some business transactions, use of an unaltered Standard Contract Template is not feasible. Permitting the use of Non-Standard Contracts under specified conditions facilitates engaging in a broader array of business transactions.

Applicability of the Policy

This policy applies to all University of Illinois contracts.


Units must follow the correct procedure to process and sign a Non-Standard Contract.

A Non-Standard Contract must be submitted to the appropriate contract processing office using the Contract Request Form in Contracts+ for review and affixing of the Comptroller's signature. 

Contact the appropriate Capital Programs and Real Estate Services Office for Non-Standard Contracts relating to capital programs and real estate.
