A range of standard agreements are available to organisational units across UQ.

Standard agreements are pre-approved contracts that allow UQ staff to enter into contracts quickly, and on reasonable terms and conditions.

To determine who can sign a standard agreement, see the Delegations Policy [1.10.01] and the Schedule of Delegations (staff login required). If the agreement is related to accepting a gift on UQ's behalf, see the Gift Acceptance Delegations Policy [1.10.04].

If you make changes to the terms and conditions of a standard agreement, it is no longer standard and will usually need to be signed at a higher level.

Remember:

  • agreements are updated regularly, so make sure you download the current version each time you use an agreement
  • you still need to obtain all necessary approvals, comply with relevant policies, and follow appropriate procedures
  • if you need help completing a standard agreement, contact Legal Services. 

There are also template agreements available for research matters, which differ from standard agreements. Access to these agreements is limited to authorised staff only. For information on these agreements, see our Research agreements.

The Chief Operating Officer and Legal Services have approved the standard agreements below. All standard agreements are secure – log in with your UQ staff login to view agreements.
