UIDP27 Academy Workshop: Risk Assessment in the Negotiation of Contract Terms
September 12, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Contracting • Advanced
Too often, contract negotiations become protracted over terms that have little bearing on the activities covered. Each party may have “standard” positions that have been developed to apply generally to the range of contracts seen by an office, and negotiate from those standard positions. In fact, the activities covered by contracts between industry and universities vary widely, and the risks covered by contract terms will also vary. For example, a confidentially agreement covering transfer of drug information for development of a clinical trial proposal may carry less risk with respect to a marking requirement than one covering transfer of information relating to project between a university and a defense contractor. Risk tolerance with respect to indemnification provisions may vary between a contract covering an agricultural field trial vs. a sponsored research agreement for developing technology for sensing devices in a self-driving car.
