Micah Vinson Contract officer Authority A contract officer plays an intricate part in our system of government. This authority is delegated to government employees who directly handle business on behalf of the United States. The Contracting Officer is important in forming contracts. Since the officer exercises certain powers, those dealings are vital to the legal relations between the government and the third party. Express agency or authority is produced by candid words written or orally. Agency created by verbal speech is usually as binding as agency created by writing, but may be hard to prove. When authority is given in writing, the writing itself usually gives the element of proof necessary where a dispute arises concerning the agency relationship. When writing is ambiguous, or verbal evidence may be used to prove the existence and limits of the authority, subject to the rule that oral evidence may not be used to contradict the plain and clear meaning of writing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
