The Procurement and Contract Services database has started to send out automatic alerts to the Principal Investigators for contracts that are either about to expire or are needing confirmation on continuation of the contract. The two emails are as follows:
- confirmation of the continued use of an auto-renew or perpetual contract
- notification of the impending expiration of a term contract
The confirmation of the continued use of an auto-renew or perpetual contract will be sent once every two years around the anniversary date of the contract. The notification of the impending expiration of a term contract will be sent 3-6 months prior to the expiration of the contract. If you receive either of these emails, please review the contract in question and reply to the email to indicate what direction Procurement or Contract Services should proceed with the contract.
