If there is both a government and a local arrangement, use the local agreement. There may also be government framework agreements in which we have on-demand university contracts. In these cases, you must first use the appeal agreement, which is a priority. Contract or sub-price: a market or sub-price is a premium for a prescribed or defined project with a specified period for a specified amount with defined delivery elements. There are two types of contracts – refund and fixed price. In a fee reimbursement agreement, the promoter agrees to bear all eligible costs incurred by the university in the work or research process up to an agreed maximum. A fixed-price contract requires the (s) principal controller (s) to a defined level of work for a specified amount; that is, the sponsor pays the university a fixed amount to complete a specific task, regardless of the actual cost. If the cost of the project exceeds the contract amount, the lead investigator must cover the cost overrun with the division head, the dean and the research, Discovery – Innovation. For example, affiliation agreements are made between the university and another institution or entity to fulfill a common mission, such as teaching or research training. The types of partnership agreements include: a legally binding agreement to deal with certain common information such as confidential, proprietary or trade secrets and not to pass it on to third parties without proper authorization. It is Mason`s policy to require lead investigators to sign these agreements by recognizing their responsibility to protect this confidential information during preliminary interviews or research projects. Gifts are a voluntary transfer of valuables to a person or organization in which no physical quantity of goods or services is expected. A gift is usually motivated by a charitable intent and is irrevocable.
Gifts, sometimes called charitable funds, share many functions with sponsored projects/agreements, including requirements for progress and financial reporting or results, as well as a clear volume of work. The types of gifts are: A document on the allocation of rights (AOR) is a non-monetary agreement that defines the rights between the parties to the existing (context) and future (foreground) intellectual property. As a general rule, the country of intellectual protection is discussed in the context of financing agreements in connection with the other terms and conditions. If IP privileges are required to create before an award document, an AOR is used. As a general rule, an AOR grants each party the use of the project IP not exclusively and without compensation for the project performance. It also contains an option to negotiate an exclusive license in a separate agreement. If you submit a SBIR or STTR proposal, an AOR is required before a compliant letter of commitment is sent to the company. This is necessary to ensure that all background IPs are identified and protected, while defining rights for the leading IP. Since the SBIR and STTR proposals are funded by the Confederation, the Bayh-Dole Act is used with 37 CFR 401s, which says what we invent, what we own, what you invent, own and own together inventions created together. A clinical trial agreement is an agreement that allows the university to administer a drug or device free of charge to the university in order to comply with a protocol provided by a sponsor. The sponsor can be either a for-profit organization, such as a pharmaceutical company. B, a not-for-profit organization, like the government.B.
The university`s lead investigator records the data from these studies, which are then made available to the sponsor. Contracting Services is the signing authority for these agreements. Lund University uses both national and local agreements. The common denominator is that they are both binding and must be respected. The OSP contract team uses other tools to facilitate research on behalf of Mason researchers. These agreements have very specific purposes and can be adapted as needed.
