The IEEE Legal department must review:
(i) all agreements on non-IEEE paper;
(ii) all agreements over $25,000.00; and
(iii) all agreements that are less than $25,000.00, but are “high risk”, i.e: related to data privacy, potential personal injury, government-affiliated entities, working with minors, burdensome contract terms (e.g., relating to financial exposure or obligations, indemnification, etc.), chartered transportation, or realty.
Professional subject matter experts assess risk when reviewing materials during the process.
Please see the Finance Operations Manual for additional details on this topic.
