Contracts and Agreements Management

The IRM Unit has been working on several initiatives to ensure that critical legal documents are created and managed securely and effectively. These have included:

  • The identification and digitisation of current and historical contracts and agreements from within the Registry.
  • The management of digitised copies in a pilot content management site. A range of metadata have been developed to assist in the management contracts and agreements.
  • Collaboration with the Policy and Risk Unit and external legal advisers on the use of legal instruments. This will result in the development of formal policy advice for UC staff on the use and development of memoranda and agreement documentation.
For advice and guidance on the creation, management, storage and retrieval of UC legal documents, please contact
