Agreement Review

Researchers and administrators may encounter several types of collaborative agreements that vary by the goal and nature of the agreement.  Many of these agreements must be routed through the OSP.  The chart below may be used to assist researchers and administrators in identifying the proper agreement needed based on the purpose and the type of internal review.  Please note that OSP may need to route some agreements through UW System Office of Legal Counsel and/or other university departments or units.  To initiate a new agreement or to request review of an agreement provided by an outside collaborator, please complete the Agreement Review Request Form:
