Extras Administration: Signer has authority to bind university

Language from Contract:
NOTE: The "official authorized to execute agreements" will vary among organizations. Whenever possible, the NDI prefers that this official be someone at a higher level of authority than the principal investigator or other persons responsible for the study or project; for example, a university official authorized to sign grant proposals, a company vice president, a government division or bureau director. By signing this agreement as the authorized official, you are declaring that you have the authority to make the above assurances on behalf of the university, company, agency or other organization and to bind the organization to the terms of this agreement and you take responsibility for the confidentiality assurances of all organizations or individuals who are participating in this study.
