UW Research

Non-Award Agreement (NAA)

An agreement between the UW and another party which does not include external funding, requires institutional sign-off, and is related to or in anticipation of a sponsored award that obligates UW resources or otherwise makes legal obligations on behalf of the University.

Some examples include: data use agreements (DUA), confidentiality agreements (CDA), master agreements, material transfer agreements (MTA), and unfunded research agreements, etc.

NOTE: Requests to access or certifications for submitting data to a federal repository should be submitted via a Modification Request in SAGE and not an NAA eGC1.
