The Contracts Specialist is responsible for preparation, drafting, review and negotiation of incoming agreements, and development, compilation, and submission of proposals for research, public service, and other contracts which may be assigned by the supervisor.
The Specialist works independently to assess complex grant, contract and subcontract transactions where analysis requires an in-depth evaluation of variable factors.
