Central offices should always be involved in reviewing award terms and conditions and negotiating contracts. Research grants or contracts are between the sponsor and Duke University, not the sponsor and an individual, and the terms and conditions of an award must comply with Duke policy. Research collaborations in which data, materials, or ideas will be shared may also require formal agreements to be in place before exchanges may begin.
Campus Schools/Provost Area contracts and agreements
Personnel from Campus Schools or the Provost Area should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with any contracts or agreements that may need to be in place. The Office of Research Support should be involved in the execution of all research-related contracts and agreements.
