Dear University Business and Research Administrators,

Don't forget SPA has a process for reviewing, accepting and signing Non-Sponsored Agreements (also called no-money collaborations).

Examples of Non-Sponsored Agreements:

  *   Confidentiality Agreements relating to existing or potential research projects
  *   Data Transfer and Use Agreements
  *   Equipment Use or Loan Agreements
  *   Research Collaboration Agreements
  *   Right of Entry Permits
  *   Teaming Agreements
What to do and What will happen:

  *   Investigators, staff, administrators should submit to SPA at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> all Non-Sponsored Agreements related to research. Include all relevant documentation, emails and any additional instructions needed to process the agreement.
  *   Upon receipt, SPA staff will create an InfoEd record for the agreement, using a new proposal type called "Non-Sponsored Agreement."
  *   The agreement will be assigned to a SPA Award Acceptance Specialist<https://www.uvm.edu/spa/staff-function> for review and completion, similar to a sponsored agreement.
  *   For those Non-Sponsored Agreements that appear to engage our principal investigator in an organized project and that requires a time commitment or other resources of the department, SPA will request the Department Chair or designee approval of the non-sponsored project prior to completing the agreement.
  *   The final version of the agreement will be archived and retrievable using InfoEd<https://spogi.uvm.edu/>, until such time UVMClick - Agreements<https://www.uvm.edu/ovpr/uvmclick> is live.
This Non-Sponsored Agreement<http://www.uvm.edu/spa/?Page=non_sponsored_agreements.html> process has been posted to SPA's Homepage<http://www.uvm.edu/spa/> under "Resources".

For reference, below are two related offices and agreement types those offices manage.
