Consulting Agreements

Note: Faculty members are responsible for complying with UC policies. Consulting agreements between faculty or other academic employees and outside entities are personal agreements to which the University is not a party. If after reviewing the various published information available, faculty still have questions they should first consult with their Department Chair or manager. If the Chair or manager is unable to answer a question, they will contact staff in the appropriate functional office, such as the Office of Technology Management, Office of Sponsored Research or the Office of the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs to ask for assistance.
