This seminar will present an overview of the kinds of contracts typically utilized by investigators to successfully execute their research. Topics that will be included: creating sub-awards agreements with collaborating institutions; contract amendments; sub-awards to foreign institutions; vendor contracts; material transfer agreements and affirmation memos, and more.
