The RDO assists campus researchers in completing agreements with sponsors including the Government of India, corporate sources and charitable organizations in order to make sure that campus requirements are met and risks associated with legal documents are carefully considered. We work through contract discussions, negotiations, e-stamping, signature stage and follow-through with external parties and internal administrative teams. The time period required for such negotiation depends on the complexity of the agreements.

The following kinds of agreements should be routed via the RDO:

  • Sponsored Research Agreements (incoming)
  • Sponsored Research Agreements (outgoing subcontracts)
  • Corporate Research Collaboration agreements
  • Philanthropic donation Agreements
  • MOUs with financial obligations
  • Facility Access Agreements
  • Consultancy Agreements
  • Amendment of Agreements
