RMS Service Partnership Agreement (SPA)

Last updated on June 13, 2016

In an effort to clarify roles and create consistent service across the ten Research Management Services (RMS) teams, RMS formed a workgroup to review and revise the RMS Service Partnership Agreement (SPA).   The workgroup was composed of faculty, department managers and staff, Industry Contracts Division partners, and Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) leadership and staff.  Research Management Services is committed to facilitating a smooth transition to the 2015 Service Partnership Agreement, effective October 1, 2015.

This page contains resources for navigating changes in the agreement including available training.
