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
