- UND leases equipment, personal property* or real property from another entity and total payments paid by UND (including lease, or rental, interest and all other payments over the lease/rental term) equal $750,000 or more.
Additionally, the chancellor may, at his discretion, submit the lease to the SBHE for consideration and approval in lieu of his approval, which may considerably delay the review and subsequent approval of the lease.
