Setting up your contract
More and more, research is being financially supported through agreements with a variety of sponsors, including both industry and government agencies. The Office of Research Services has well-established supports to help researchers navigate this process.
Not sure if you need a contract?
Receive a full contract from a sponsor?
Occasionally, an external sponsor will send you a contract for signature. Researchers do not have the authority to sign research contracts. Please contact us immediately. We will review the agreement, contact the sponsor and negotiate any required changes.
Need a change to an existing agreement?
Changes to the agreement or project, such as an extended time frame or revised budget, are often required over the life of a project. An amendment, signed by the parties to the contract, needs to be in place in order for these changes to be in effect. Please contact us to arrange for such an amendment to be signed.
