A contract between the funding body and the University of Otago is negotiated when funding for a research grant has been awarded. This applies whether you have a contract directly with a funding body or are a sub-contractor on someone else's grant. In some cases the application itself will be all that is required and in some cases Principal Investigators will be required to complete contracting documentation.

As each contract differs there is no set process to be followed. The Research & Enterprise Office will work with staff to set up these contracts and make sure they adequately protect such things as confidentiality, liability, Intellectual Property (IP) and publication rights.
