PSD staff members review, negotiate and facilitate the acceptance of all grants, contracts, government contracts, confidentiality and data use agreements. They are the only official signatories of these documents to UF Review the various forms and templates needed for research. A CDA should be considered whenever you disclose information that is not publicly available and you wish to restrict the use or dissemination of the other party. Examples may be sending a study of your design (or protocol) to a pharmaceutical company, presenting a conference to a pharmaceutical company discussing your groundbreaking research, or sharing a potentially patentable idea with an employee outside the university as part of a funding application. A Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA), also known as a Confidentiality Agreement (NDA), is a legal contract between at least two parties that describes confidential information that the parties wish to share for specific purposes but wish to restrict access by third parties. As such, a CDA protects the results of non-public research and commercial information from disclosure or use by third parties. ADCs are often signed when two institutions, companies, individuals or other companies need to consider cooperating and consulting or exchanging confidential information. A CDA should not be used to cover the actual conduct of the research, as it would limit the ability of the university and the researcher to publish or disseminate the results and lessons learned from the research. As a general rule, the CDA should only allow the use of the information provided for evaluation purposes. The effective implementation of the project should be covered by a separate contract, such as a clinical trial agreement or a sponsored research agreement. Division of Sponsored Programs is the only office authorized by the University of Florida to accept grants, contracts, and other agreements from external sponsors and to implement unfunded team agreements and memoranda of understanding with partners in which unfunded research or development is expected. Documents requiring documents submitted for signature must be verified and signed by an authorized representative in DSP. Do not sign documents or communicate financial or institutional commitments unless they have been verified and approved by DSP.
Entertainment payments that compromise or appear excessive the exempt status of the UFRF and/or research objectives are not paid or reimbursed. Not sure which office to send an agreement to? In the event that meals or entertainment are for several people, the names of each person, their relationship to the research project, the topic of the discussion and the purpose of the meeting should be detailed. . . .
