Dear Colleagues,

Re-sending; Seems we had a listserv issue.

Don't forget SPA has a process for reviewing, accepting and signing No-Money Agreements related to research (also called Non-Financial Agreements).

Examples of No Money/Non-Financial Agreements:


  *   Non Disclosure Agreements (NDA) relating to existing or potential research projects
  *   Confidentiality Agreements (CDA) relating to existing or potential research projects
  *   Data Use Agreements (DUA)
  *   Data Transfer and Use Agreements (DTUA)
  *   Research Collaboration Agreements
  *   Teaming Agreements
  *   Facility Use Agreements
  *   Master Agreements

What to do and What will happen:


  *   No-money agreements related to research should be delivered to SPA at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> or submit using UVMClick - Agreements (Job Aide Attached).
  *   Include all relevant documentation, emails and any additional instructions needed to process the agreement.
  *   Upon receipt, the agreement is assigned to a SPA Award Acceptance Officer and a UVMClick - Agreement record is created if not already in UVMClick.
  *   The Award Acceptance Officer will work with the PI, staff and the sponsor to complete the document.
  *   For those no money agreements that appear to engage our principal investigator in an organized project that requires a time commitment or other resources of the department, SPA will request the Department Chair or designee's approval of the non-sponsored project prior to completing the agreement.
  *   The final version of the agreement will be archived and retrievable using UVMClick - Agreements<https://www.uvm.edu/ovpr/uvmclick>.

The web version of the process is found at: Non-Financial Agreement<https://www.uvm.edu/spa/accept-award#sponsored_agreement>
