Performance agreements are used to engage the services of performers for concerts, lectures, and various theatrical and musical productions. The University of California Performance Agreement should be used for all categories of performances.

In the event there is any deviation or change in the University Performance Agreement form, such deviation or change must be approved by the University General Counsel prior to execution. If, for any reason, a form of agreement or contract other than the University Performance Agreement is used, it must be approved by the University General Counsel prior to execution.
