The Contracts and Real Estate Office (CREO), under the Division of Finance and Administration is responsible for drafting, reviewing, negotiating, and executing business and administrative contracts for the University, system wide.

We work directly with WSU client departments, and with non-WSU entities to include private organizations, other educational institutions, public agencies, and legal professionals in representing the University in the contracting process.  We do not represent Washington State University in a legal capacity.

For more information about how to process University contracts, please see how to submit a request, BPPM 10.11, email or call our office directly at (509) 335-2252.

The Contracts and Real Estate Office currently utilizes CobbleStone as our Contracts Management System.  CobbleStone also acts as the official repository of records for University contracts.  For more information on the CobbleStone system, please refer to the PowerPoint trainings on the CREO Training webpage, or refer to Finance & Administration Information Systems’ (FAIS) website,
