Easy Processing through OGC
If review by the Office of General Counsel will be necessary, get us involved early -- all legal work can be completed well before protocols are even approved.
Use of Transmittal Forms (Form A, B, C, D, E, F, F/Software, G, L, Q)
Transmittal forms are required in some circumstances. Please review the UTS125 Processing Intellectual Property Agreements andUTS125 At-A Glance to determine whether a transmittal form will be required for your agreement.
Use of Forms B and D requires that you be sensitive to when changes to our standard form agreement (Form B) or a company universal agreement (Form D) are non-substantive.
- Call/email any changes related to the four IP sections for quick feedback on whether a change is substantive.
- If you have to use Form F, there should be no extra delay if you contact us early in the process.
- Use Form G (Non-Conforming Agreements) when your agreement does not conform to the Board of Regents Intellectual Property Rule 90101.
- Use Form L (Licensing Agreements) for institutional approval of Patent and/or Technology License Agreements.
- Use Form Q (Sponsor-Initiated Clinical Trial Agreement) when your agreement is a Sponsor-Initiated Clinical Trial where sponsor wrote the clinical trial protocol and/or provided the drug.
Turnaround time for direct inquiries is usually within a few days, if not the same day. If you need an immediate answer, please advise us so we can arrange to meet your deadline.
