Secondment Contracts

A Secondment Contract is an arrangement made between UPEI and another employer, detailing the temporary transfer of an employee from his or her duties.

To initiate a Secondment Contract, please complete a Contract Approval Control Form. Ensure all parties to the contract are identified, whether a new account is required, and that the form is signed by the originator, department head and dean or vice-president.

Please use MyUPEI to generate a Purchase Requisition upon receipt of fully signed contract. Please reference the contract number located in the top right hand corner of the Control Approval Control Form when completing Purchase Requisition.

For reference, you can use this Sample Secondment Agreement. (MS Word)

All contractual obligations of the University must be reviewed by the Comptroller's Office and signed by an official signing authority, namely:

  • the President
  • the Vice-President Administration and Finance
  • the Vice-President Research
  • the Vice-President Academic
  • the Comptroller

Once the appropriate documents are provided to the Comptroller's Office, there may be a requirement to meet and discuss the purpose or any conditions in the agreement. Upon approval of the contract, copies are made available to the Accounting Office, and to the originating department for completion of the process.
