New P&P – 2.421, Multi-Term Contracts

TO: UH Principal Investigators / Designated University Officials / Other Project Personnel

Many project-related activities require continuity of the scientific effort over a period that exceeds one year.  In such situations, the Principal Investigator makes the determination when a multi-year arrangement is necessary for the project to meet its obligations and must ensure that such arrangements also meet the sponsor’s award guidelines.  To assist projects in the procurement process, we have established written guidelines, 2.421, Multi-Term Contracts, which describes the reasons a multi-term contract is justified, the required documentation and the contract terms required to be disclosed in the solicitation.
