Searching for & Amending the Contract

This guide will cover:


General Information

The WyoCloud Contract Process is used to create, amend, and search all contracts for the University of Wyoming.

This QRG covers searching for & amending a current contract; the Creating the Contract QRG provides information on requirements that necessitate a contract and details the steps for creating the contract in the WyoCloud Contracts Module.

Please ensure that you have access to the WyoCloud Contracts Module to search for or amend a current contract. To obtain this access, any employee can self-enroll in the training in the Learning Management System, Oracle Learning Cloud (OLC).  Course Name: WyoCloud Financial Management Introduction to Contracts Training.

Advanced Search

  • The Advanced Search page is the main landing page when you select Contract Management > Contracts from the Navigator. This feature allows for searching of contracts in a pending status as well as other statuses using a variety of search parameters.

  • To search, you must enter at least one of the search criteria marked with two asterisks (**). These are:

    • Number: this can be the full number assigned to a contract at creation or just part of it.  For example, you can input your five-digit organization number to obtain all contracts associated with your organization (this example will only work if the contracts you are searching for have been numbered in accordance with the General Counsel standards:

5-digit Organization number for the Department that originates the Contract - Name of Supplier – Month and Year of Contract creation


  • 70110DellMarketingMay2017

  • 70110-Dell Marketing-May 2017

  • Party Name: this is the supplier with which the contract was created.

    • Contract Owner: person who created the contract.  This is useful to search for contracts you did not personally create.  The Contract Owner is the person who entered the contract into WyoCloud.

    • My Contracts: check this box to display only contracts you created.

    • Start Date: Start date entered on the contract.

    • End Date: End date entered on the contract.

  • Of the additional, optional, search parameters, Status is the most useful to most users.  Use this to only display contracts in a specific step in the creation process.

  • After entering at least one of the search parameters, click Search.

Step Three

Amending a Contract

Because changes may occur within a department, a contract may be amended by a person other than  the original Contract Owner.  When this occurs, the person amending the contract needs to update the  Parties section to replace their name with the previous Contract Owner.

  • Obtain an amendment from the supplier or complete the Amendment to Agreement for Services. You must fill in and complete the following sections:

    • The contracting party in the heading

    • The commencement date of the original agreement (not the date of the amendment or any previous amendments). 

(Numbers 1 and 2 on the Amendment to Agreement for Services document are examples and can be deleted or re-worded as necessary.)

  • Navigate to the contract you want to amend in the WyoCloud Contracts module utilizing the steps found in Searching for Submitted Contracts – Advanced Search.

  • From any tab in the contract, on the top right of the page click Actions.

  • Select the Amend Contract option from the original contract entry in WyoCloud.

  • Make all necessary changes to the contract entry; follow the steps listed for Creating the Contract QRG to ensure everything is done correctly. Make sure you upload the Amendment to the Contract Terms tab, and leave the original contract on the Documents tab.

  • The contract will go through the process as provided in Creating the Contract QRG

  • If you are decreasing or increasing the payment amount (and if a purchase order (PO) has already been issued for the original purchase), initiate a Change Order with Procurement Services and attach the Amendment. Follow the steps outlined in the Edit Purchase Orders (Change Orders) QRG to create the change order.


This completes the Searching For & Amending A Contract QRG.
