The University has developed a DocuSign agreement template for use by requesting departments when contracting for guest speaker services. The agreement template includes University approved terms and conditions and requires only service specific information such as scope of work and payment terms to complete. The agreement is to be completed by the department requesting the services, signed by the contractor, and then reviewed and routed for signature by Contract Management as further detailed below.

To start the process, click on the Guest Speaker Agreement button below, complete the form and sign electronically following the DocuSign instructions and prompts.

Contractors will be notified that their signature is required by email, and a 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.

DocuSign Agreement Routing Workflow

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 Guest Speaker 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.
