A Sponsored Research Agreement ("SRA") is the agreement governing the conditions for performing research funded by entities other than the government. The SRA is negotiated by the Office of Technology Transfer in close contact with the Principal Investigator. The major contributions from the Principal Investigator in an SRA are the planned research and the actual budget. The Office will handle negotiations with the sponsor for indirect costs, since these are established by the University and not the Principal Investigator.
If the Sponsored Research Agreement involves a clinical protocol, please contact Research Services.
If you have any questions about executing a Sponsored Research Agreement, please contact Frances Streeter at the Office of Technology Transfer by phone at (409) 772-0376 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
