Contracts

The UNC Charlotte Contract Checklist has been prepared by the Office of Legal Affairs to assist Materials Management officers and other University employees in the negotiation and review of contracts. It is based on contracting guidelines from the NC Attorney General's office, on the rules of the State's and the University's Materials Management divisions, and on University policies.

Volunteers

Many divisions at UNC Charlotte engage volunteers to do work for the University. These volunteers are a valuable resource for the University.  However, volunteers are not considered University employees and do not enjoy many of the protections of employees, such as Worker’s Compensation and the State Personnel Act. It is important that each volunteer understands the protections afforded, as well as the limits of those protections afforded, while volunteering for the University.  In addition, it is important that each volunteer understands his or her obligations, such as compliance with University policies. Therefore, every University volunteer should sign a Volunteer Agreement
