Agreements require careful review to protect the interests of the researcher and the System member. An SRS contract negotiator reviews the terms and conditions of federal, state, and non-profit agreements for non-standard conditions and negotiates any necessary changes. To confirm agreements are acceptable, SRS contract negotiators consult, as needed, the A&M System’s Office of General Counsel, Technology Commercialization, and the appropriate A&M System member’s administration. Industry contracts are negotiated by the System member.
