When an Insert requires a signature, it must be completed either by: (i) printing, signing, and scanning the Insert; or by: (ii) digitally signing the Insert and providing along with the Insert an additional document or information that verifies the identity of the signatory. In some cases, it will be required that the signature of an Insert that is not digitally signed be notarized.
A digital signature together with an additional document or information that verifies the identity of the signatory is an “Acceptable Digital Signature”. Additional documentation or information may include: (i) a certificate of completion if the signatory uses DocuSign; (ii) a Final Audit Report if the signatory uses Adobe Sign; (iii) evidence that the digital signature has been certified by the signatory using a document signing certificate; or (iv) other documentation or information produced by a commercially available software that can be used by the Procurement Administrator to verify the identity of the signatory. Digital signatures without a document or information verifying the identity of the signatory are not acceptable; signature images and other electronic signatures are not acceptable.
