This meeting is addressed to mid-level scientific administration officials and will also provide sufficient basic information to assist those new to the management of grants, contracts and sub-agreements. And you don`t have to pay thousands of dollars to a lawyer to design such an arrangement. Versions of generic models or versions of subcontracts that you can customize for your purposes are available online under National Law Docs, Business-in-a-Box and other locations. Note that beyond these bases, outsourcing agreements can involve any type of supply, z.B. that your customer requires the right to revoke the subcontractor that you can insert. Sub-contracts are subdivided into sub-files based on their payment terms. The agreements of the first sub-file provide for the payment of a lump sum after the completion of the work. The agreements of the second sub-file provide for payment in increments upon presentation of an invoice from the subcontractor. The third sub-file contains models in which the contractor initiates the payment transaction by sending a notice of payment to the subcontractor. The fourth sub-file includes subcontracting agreements for more complex projects. It`s about a 10-minute reading, legal things bother me, but it`s important to understand the agreements you sign. “Overall, it`s just a very valuable experience. I got more out of this two-day session than I received for most of the other training I`ve taken in the field of research management.
It was a very informative meeting. The two speakers (Kim and Trudy) were also great in sharing real applications and resources! ” – Jeremy Hamlin, Accounting Manager, The University of New Mexico (Contracts – Subagreements, 2017) “Great class and resources!” – Elizabeth A. Montalvo, Research Administrator, Office of Sponsored Programs, College of William and Mary (Contracts – Subagreements, 2017) “Great program, instructors were excellent and made it fun.” Lori DeMartino , Florida Atlantic University (Contracts – Subagreements, 2018) “Glad I was able to wait, learned a lot of great best practices that will be introduced as options for our university.” – Carmen Osier, Grant Administrator, Texas A-M University-Corpus Christi (Contracts – Subagres, 2017) Sub-agreements will include the agreements mentioned below and contain other agreements that the parties may agree. Content is categorized by case studies and practical exercises. “You may be used to hiring subcontractors with a conversation and a handshake,” says the National Federation of Independent Affairs (“Hiring a subcontractor? 7 must-take-steps”). “Perhaps you know the contractor and you think the project is simple and straight. But misunderstandings and surprises can occur in the best relationships. Fortunately, most of them can be avoided by getting everything in writing. While writing cashing out of you costs more time and money at the beginning than a simple handshake, written contracts can save you the high cost of justice, with surprises and misunderstandings. The master`s contract must have a unique language describing the responsibilities and obligations of contractors and subcontractors.
