The Office of Contract Administration supports the educational missions of the component institutions by overseeing the development and implementation of all campus facility construction and renovation projects, and purchased utilities.
The division seeks to accomplish this goal by doing the following:
Coordinating approval of projects by the TSUS Board of Regents and/or the TSUS chancellor;
Procuring design and construction services for major capital projects;
Drafting and negotiating contracts with design professionals and contractors for the programming, design and construction of facilities;
Administering design and construction contracts; and
Drafting policies and procedures for facilities planning and construction, presenting such policies for approval by the TSUS Board of Regents, and implementing such policies.
The ultimate goal of the Office of Contract Administration is to facilitate the construction of new and renovated facilities on the campuses of each of the TSUS component institutions that enable those institutions to carry out their respective missions, and to do so in an efficient and fiscally sound manner.
As with all of the divisions of the System, the Office of Contract Administration is dedicated to carrying out its responsibilities in a manner consistent with the best interests of the students enrolled at our institutions, their families, and the citizens of Texas.
