The Guest Speaker Agreement is used to document the scope of work and payment terms for services provided to the University by Guest Speakers.  The form should be originated by the department requiring services, signed by the contractor, and then forwarded to Contract Management for review and final signature.

Guest Speaker Agreements should be prepared and signed electronically through DocuSign by using the link below.  This system allows for faster, more efficient processing, and tracking of documents.  It will also ensure that forms are routed correctly.

Contractors will be notified that their signature is required by email, and link will be provided to allow them to access the form.  They may access the form from any internet capable device (computer, smart phone, tablet, etc.).  Contractors are not required to establish an account with DocuSign, but may choose to sign up for a free account if they would like to access their document history.

Once the document is fully executed, all parties (department, contractor, and Contract Management) will receive a final copy via email.


Independent Contractors
If the contractor is an Individual, an Independent Contractor (IC) Form is required to be completed and approved.  A final copy of the IC form must be attached to the Professional Service Agreement.  After the Contractor has signed the Guest Speaker Agreement, it will be routed back to the department to allow for the IC Form to be attached.  For more information about the IC process, refer to the UA Tax Office website.
