Request Contracting Service

When a faculty member is working with PreAward, PreAward will request Contracting’s involvement at the appropriate time. When in doubt, ask your PreAward specialist about the next step

When the agreement does not involve PreAward -- such as confidentiality agreements, material transfer agreements, unfunded collaborations, and MOUs -- the faculty member should send an email request to Contracting’s departmental email.

Contracting’s departmental email box is: and our general line is (765) 494-3863. To reach a particular analyst, please see the directory or the organization chart. When using Contracting’s departmental email box, you should expect:

  • Your email will be answered by Contracting Support with an acknowledgement or more detailed response within 1 day during normal volume and 2 days during high volume. Typically, the response will let you know who your assigned contract analyst will be so you may work directly with the analyst. If you have not received a response, please call our general line (765) 494-3863 for assistance.
  • If you have an urgent item, please state the timeframe clearly in your email. If the timeframe is urgent, mark your email as priority (the red exclamation point) and put “URGENT” in the subject line.
