Conference Contract Process Change

Effective 1 November 2011, all conference related contracts with a value of US$25,000 and greater will only be executed by IEEE Strategic Sourcing after the conference has been approved by IEEE Conference Services.  

The standard process for obtaining conference approval with IEEE is as follows:   

  • A Conference Information Schedule (CIS) is submitted.
  • Staff  validates and verifies sponsorship (including receipt of an approved MOU, if applicable) and brand use.


  • Contracts with a value greater than US$25,000 must be reviewed and executed by IEEE Strategic Sourcing.
  • Contracts under US$25,000 must be submitted to  for retention once executed by organizer.
