Contracting/Purchasing Policies and Templates


This policy sets forth the review and approval process for non-employment, non-construction contracts involving the expenditure of funds by the University. Unless otherwise noted herein, these contracts must be reviewed by relevant campus experts and processed through Georgetown Sourcing & Procurement Services (GS&PS) prior to signature. 

The purpose of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI DSS”) Policy is to secure payment card transaction data in order to protect account and personally identifiable information provided by cardholders using payment cards (e.g. credit cards or debit cards) for business with Georgetown University (the “University”). This policy defines and describes the responsibilities and required practices with respect to the receipt, use, storage, processing, and retention of payment card data to conduct University business.
