    • Contract Name – the title that is used to identify the contract
    • Supplier Name – the supplier for goods or services the contract is for
    • Contract Description – a short explanation about the contract
    • Role – the role of contract signer or contract owner to the contact name
    • Contact Name – a person who owns the contract or a person who is responsible for the signature
    • Contract Start Date – the start date of when the contract begins
    • Contract End Date – the end date of a contract with a definite end date
    • Contract Signed Date – the date when the contract is signed (note: if this column is blank, the contract is still pending a signature)
    • Contract Approved Date – the date on which the contract was fully approved (note: if this column is blank, the contract is still pending approval)
    • Department – the UW department name the contract is associated with
    • Amount – an agreed amount quoted in the contract
    • Contract Type – the type of contract such as UW Grant or Service Contract
    • Status – this identifies the current status of a contract such as:
      • Expired – the end date entered for the contract entry has passed
      • Active – the contract process is complete
      • Sent for Signature – the contract has been sent to the UW signer for signature
      • Pending Signature – the contract has been approved and general counsel is in the process of sending it to the UW signer for signature
      • Pending Approval – the contract is still in approvals (to see who the contract is pending approval with, look up the contract through the contract module and review the History tab. Within the History tab, review the list under the Approval History header.)
      • Draft – the contract is in draft stage and submission still needs to be completed. If a contract is rejected by an approver, the contract will go back into draft status as well. The contract owner will need to address the issues and resubmit.
      • Under Amendment – An amendment to the contract entry has been created
      • Canceled – the contract has been canceled
      • Closed – the contract has been completely closed out


This completes all the steps for running the Contract Status report.
