Non-Award Agreements

Use Non-Award Agreements (NAAs) for generic agreements that do not pertain to the funding for a project.

To create an NAA, follow the directions to Create an Admin Action, and then convert the AA to an NAA.

Award Signature

This field records the date of last signature for all signed agreements (standard bi-lateral agreements or agreements which only carry a single signature). This information will be used for award reporting, and by the School of Medicine and Clinical Trials Office to verify that agreements have been signed prior to enlisting participants in clinical trials studies.

You must complete this field before approving the NAA. When you select Required, you must enter a date.

If you change your choice from Required to Not Required, any existing date value will be cleared.

Intellectual Property Provision

When you create an NAA, you must provide information for the statement “This agreement/amendment provides sponsor or third party with:” which displays below the Sponsor Award Number field.

The list of choices, with check boxes, are:

  • Exclusive commercial license
  • Non-exclusive commercial license
  • Sponsor ownership over UW generated IP, including UW’s duty to assign
  • Sponsor granted interest in royalty income
  • None

Choose all that apply. If you select “None” the system will clear all other check boxes and disable them. To re-enable the check boxes, uncheck “None”.

When you select either the Exclusive or Non-exclusive commercial license check boxes, the system displays a follow-up question of “Did the sponsor agree to WAIAP pricing?” You  must answer Yes or No to this question.

Agreement Type

You must also specify the type of agreement by selecting one or more check boxess. The types of agreements include:

  • Confidentiality Agreement
  • Data Use Agreement
  • Memorandum of Understanding
  • Letter of Indemnification
  • Clinical Trial Agreement
  • Master Agreement
  • Unfunded Collaborative Agreement
  • Affiliation Agreement
  • Material Transfer Agreement
  • Other

All other information specified in the NAA is standard on all Admin Actions.
