Third Party - Contract Language, Guidelines, Policies, & More

CSU policies provide direction and support for managing and guiding third party relationships and for granting access to various University resources. In support of those policies, CSUC Information Security, Contracts and Procurement, and the Project Office have collaborated to deliver this list of useful resources; the CSUC Guidelines and contract language are particularly important in the context of working with third parties.
