What is Adobe Sign?

Adobe Sign is an electronic signature application that allows users to securely sign, initial, and enter other information on an electronic document rather than a physical copy. The cost of Adobe Sign is currently free for all departments, but this may change in the future.

Routine approval processes can take weeks because physical documents must be walked or mailed for physical signatures. With Adobe Sign, electronic documents are automatically routed through the approval process as they are signed, eliminating travel time. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions about electronic signatures.

How to Get Started


Before implementing electronic signatures, you must ensure you are in compliance with the OBFS Section 19.4.1 Electronic Signatures policy.
