LARC contracts and participation agreements (PA’s) originate in the Purchasing & Contract Services Department located on the Pasadena Community College campus. Purchasing & Contract Services is the main point of contact for any issues or questions related to these documents. The documents are generated from the LEAs and Community Colleges’ participation commitments uploaded into the NOVA system.
Once processed and confirmed, participants receive their respective agreements via Adobe Sign, the signature program used by LARC to confirm and track all contracts, PA’s and amendments. Please allow Adobe Sign to reach your email inbox and check your spam folder to prevent deleting these documents. These documents, once fully executed, are recorded and filed for LARC’s use to issue payments and manage fiscal services for all participants. The main point of contact for financial matters is the PCC Fiscal Services Department.
The timeframe for processing contracts and PA’s is dependent on the participants review, signature confirmation and responsiveness to the LARC due dates set forth in the NOVA system and Adobe Sign alerts sent out by LARC. A typical document completion might be 3-4 business days. LARC will attempt to respond and process these documents as quickly as possible.
Questions and concerns can be directed to Alonso Berumen at Aberumen4@pasadena.edu or 626-585-7338.
