Research GRANT, CONTRACT, GIFT, or Material Transfer Agreement:How to tell the difference Ann Pollack
Topics • Sources of Research Support • Research Support Spectrum • How to Differentiate Among Gifts, Grants and Contracts, and Material Transfer Agreements
Sources of Research Support Inside the University = INTRAMURAL FUNDING Outside the University = EXTRAMURAL FUNDING
Intramural Funding Includes such things as: • Academic Senate Grants • Special programs sponsored by Academic Units • Research projects supported by the faculty member using departmental funding, start up funds, etc.
Extramural Support Includes: • Gifts ($ or in kind) • Contracts or subcontracts ($ or in kind) • Grants or subgrants ($ or in kind) • Material Transfer Agreements (no $)
Research Funding Spectrum CONTRACTS GIFTS Material Transfer Agreements GRANTS
Research Funding Spectrum Sometimes subtle distinctions GIFTS CONTRACTS GRANTS
Characteristics of Gifts • “Disinterested Generosity” • No contractual obligations or deliverables • No intellectual property rights • Awarded irrevocably • Permit only general sharing of results • May be directed or undirected but no specific scope of work
Characteristics of Grants and Contracts • Specified performance period • Generally have to return unobligated balance • Specific scope of work • Auditable financial reports • Detailed technical/progress report or other work product • Other contractual obligations (e.g. deliverables, determination of how intellectual property will be handled, specification of allowable etc.)
Characteristics of MTAs • A written agreement entered into by a provider and a recipient of research material for research. • Typically includes intellectual property and ownership rights. • The material being transferred is notto be administered to humans. • Reasonable costs incurred in preparing and shipping materials may be reimbursed. No money for support of research.
Why is it so Difficult to Tell The Difference? • Award documents may not always use clear, consistent language. • Recipients expectations may not match award makers intentions. • Award makers may think that if they are using funds budgeted for philanthropic purposes that they are giving gifts regardless of the restrictions.
Must look at the award “in toto” Requires judgment Often subtle distinctions Rarely based on the existence or absence of a single characteristic Making Distinctions
Making Determinations • UCLA Policy 921 • UC Guidance documents • Judgment • Consultation
UC POLICY July 8, 1980: Letter from UC President David Saxon • Provides guidance for making distinctions • Defines characteristics of gifts vs. grants • Indicates that decisions require judgment
UC POLICY UC Contract and Grant Manual Chapter 9-500: Distinguishing between Private Gifts and Grants for Research • Defines characteristics of gifts and grants • States need for judgment • Provides guidelines for administration of gifts and grants for research
UC POLICY July 28, 1993: Letter from UC Budget Director Hershman and University Controller Pastrone • Defines characteristics of gifts, grants and contracts based on scope of research work • Defines characteristics of sales and service activities
Recommendations of the Research Investment Committee (April 2004) “Establish concrete guidelines and policies for the definition of gifts and grants. There are clear examples of gifts intended for research that escape overhead, draining resources for departmental administration from the receiving school and department. Establishing these guidelines and implementing them consistently are important to minimize friction that develops between the recipient and the School.”
Gift/Grant Committee Examined existing guidance and policy Found existing guidance adequate for making most distinctions Found that more guidance was needed for handling private monies thatdon’t fit cleanly into the gift or grant categories
Gift/Grant Committee Recommended that all proposals for specific research studies be treated by the campus as a contract or grant proposal with appropriate overhead Recommended that in general, awards to support specific research studiesbe accepted as grants
UCLA POLICY Policy 921: Accepting Private Funds in Support of Specific Research Projects • References UC policies for review of gifts/grants for research • Outlines criteria for making distinctions • Defines responsibilities for campus units
Gifts are accepted by Gift Services within External Affairs after receipt of Gift Tender from the academic unit Accounting for Regental gifts are handled by Corporate Accounting Material Transfer Agreements are negotiated by the Office of Intellectual Property Administration Grants and Contracts: From Government and Non-Profits - handledby the Office of Contract and Grant Administration (OCGA) From Industry Sponsors – handled by the Office of Intellectual Property & Industry Sponsored Research (OIP-ISR) For Industry-Sponsored Clinical Trials – handled by the School of Medicine Clinical Trial Contract Unit (CTCU) Contract and Grant account/funds are established and managed by Extramural Fund Management (EFM) Gift, Grant & Contract Processing
