RIT Agreements and Contracts

RIT uses a number of standard agreements and contracts. For a listing of all contract types and appropriate offices at RIT to contact, see Signature Authority @ RIT.

SRS administers contracts and agreements related to sponsored projects. The standard types are described below. If you have any questions about which agreement to use or require specialized language, contact SRS.

Sponsored Activity Agreements

Sponsored Research Agreement Word Document

  • Use this for projects in which new intellectual property will result from the research.
  • RIT uses a standard contract.  It provides for a company that wishes to license an invention or technology at the conclusion of the project to work with the Institute's Intellectual Property Management Office, which will negotiate licensing terms with the company. Faculty and program directors should not negotiate any of these terms or make any commitments for RIT.
  • Note that you will need to attach a scope of work (Appendix A) and budget (Appendix B). If you want help with these, contact us.
 

Research Services (Applied Research) Agreement Word Document

  • Use this for testing or other applied research projects.
  • Use this if there is NO chance that new discoveries or inventions will be made under the project.
  • Note you will need to attach a scope of work (Appendix A) and budget (Appendix B). If you want help with these, contact us.
 

Assigned Project Agreement Word Document (updated 7/16/18)

  • Use this fixed price agreement for projects where the sponsor is seeking IP ownership.
  • Use only for projects where it is possible to transfer IP ownership to the company.
  • The Intellectual Property Management Office must review each APA before final approval.
  • For these projects, an IP release fee of $5,000 or 10% of the total project cost (whichever is greater) will be added to the budget.
  • Some restrictions may apply. Please contact us if you wish to pursue this opportunity.
 

Educational Agreement Word Document
