NIU Contract/Agreement Templates

The Contracts and Industry Relations (CIR) Coordinator reviews and negotiates agreements for incoming sponsored projects agreements, as well as select non-financial agreements, such as incoming Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs), User Agreements, and Teaming Agreements. 

When possible, the CIR will submit NIU’s preferred agreement templates to sponsors for their review and consideration.
