It is that time of year again where IEEE begins to close up the financial year. As a result, and as part of our regular annual process, all contracts that require signature by 31 December 2020 need to be submitted to the Legal and Compliance (L&C) Department by Friday, 6 November to meet your needs.

To allow for the pre-work that is typical, we are requesting that all contracts be submitted to the Conference Contracts team by Friday, 30 October. We will make every effort to ensure that contracts submitted on or before this date are sent to the L&C team by their deadline and then submitted to Strategic Sourcing for signature before their end-of-year processing deadline of Friday, 11 December. Contracts submitted after these dates continue to be processed as quickly as possible in the order in which they are received.

Key Dates for Your Action for Contracts Requiring Signature by 31 Dec 2020

  • Friday, 30 October: Contracts due to the Conference Contracts Team
  • Friday, 6 November: Contracts due to the Legal and Compliance (L&C) Department
  • Friday, 11 December: Strategic Sourcing year-end processing deadline

As a reminder, please send contracts for review to
