University faculty and staff increasingly have to look outside of state and federal grants to obtain funding for their research programs. Funding in the form of sponsored agreements is becoming more common. Contracts are often difficult to understand and a standard boiler plate isn’t always appropriate.
The Office of Sponsored Programs has designed this session to discuss the key considerations of working with a Sponsored Program Contract. This is a beginner class to discuss the basics as well as provide guidance to faculty and staff whom are either currently or expected to be working with external funding awarded with a contract. Attendees will be introduced to basic contract terminology, discuss review and negotiation points, and provide an overview of contract compliance including a discussion of policy and procedures specific to sponsored contracts .
Topics of discussion include:
- Types of Contracts
- Elements of a Contract
- Key Points of a Contract to consider
- Risk Management
- Compliance in Contracting
- University Policy
- OSP Process
- Where to turn with Questions
Our goal is to help provide you with a greater understanding of working with contracts for sponsored programs for a successful execution of terms and conditions, deliverables, and project.
