ORSP Review of Terms and Conditions
Before accepting an award on behalf of the University, ORSP reviews all terms and conditions, regardless of the sponsor, and is responsible for negotiating appropriate remedies if an award fits one of the following categories:
- It contains provisions that are incompatible with University policy on sponsored research
- It is inconsistent with government-wide regulations for universities
- It fails to include all elements agreed upon prior to the award
- It requires modification to conform to the PI’s needs
In case of non-standard patent, copyright or licensing terms, Technology Transfer must approve the award terms, which will be coordinated through ORSP. Additional reviews maybe be required by University Counsel.
Once an award has been approved and processed, your ORSP Project Administrator will connect with you, your Department Administrator, and Budget Officer to set up a New Award Briefing. This briefing will discuss all special terms and conditions of the award and who has the responsibility to complete each item. The new award checklist can be reviewed here.
