Purchasing & Strategic Contracting

Statement of Work

The Statement of Work (SOW) is a tool used to describe the specific requirements applicable to a particular item or service being purchased. The SOW details the services a Supplier shall perform, indicating the type, specification, level and quality of goods and/or services, as well as the Supplier’s time schedule for performance. The SOW is incorporated as a part of the contract (either a Purchase Order or a University standard Contract for Services) and becomes the basis by which the vendors performance is evaluated.
