Access to Medicare data requires a Data Use Agreement (DUA) from the Centers for Medicare – Medicaid Services (CMS) The limited data links available from the following sources: Some gifts and scholarships do not require ORSP treatment. Some subsidies do. ORSP also helps with contracts and agreements. Determine what you are working with and what supports ORSP. An AEA is required whenever data, data set or software that is not public or subject to other usage restrictions is transferred, an AEA cannot or should not be made up of personal data. Many sponsor-funded research projects require that project data be made public. Data Use Agreements (DUA) can be forwarded to ORSP for processing through eResearch Proposal Management`s Unfunded Agreement System (UFA). Unfunded research activities are generally carried out under written contracts defining the specific expectations and responsibilities of the parties. The coordination of unfunded research activities can be complex and some may require university approvals for the use of university property, space, faculty efforts, students or compliance committee authorizations for protocols on human or animal subjects. UFAs are integrated into the eRPM to enable the research community to facilitate the link between these agreements, to monitor the status of UFA agreements and to communicate with administrative homes and centres.
A Confidentiality Agreement (NDA) ensures that certain information disclosed during discussions is treated confidentially and is used only for the limited purposes defined by the NDA. NDAs can also be referred to as confidentiality agreements (CA) or proprietary information agreements (IAPs). The table below lists the types of unfunded agreements concluded by U-M, including non-discloser agreements (AND), data use agreements (DUAs), equipment transfer agreements (MMA) and other agreements. Please also check out our standard templates and the agreements to download. A contract or contract includes commitments for which the service is recognized as a legal obligation. Each contract document includes a performance obligation such as a Performance Statement (SOW) or a description of the benefits to be provided. The commitment must be developed with great care, because the inability of the university or contractor to deliver the promised results or to fulfill what is defined in the SOW constitutes a breach of contract. All are legal contracts between two parties. Unfunded agreements do not have associated external funding. These agreements include elements such as ACCORDS, LESA, MTA and other agreements. A “UFA” is a record in eResearch related to these unfunded agreements.
As these agreements are not directly related to funding, we refer to them as “unfunded agreements” or UFAs. Signatory Authority: Signatory Authority refers to people who, because of their position at Eastern Michigan University, have the opportunity to sign on behalf of Eastern Michigan University. Workers in different positions may have the power to sign different types of agreements. hrsonline.isr.umich.edu/sitedocs/dmgt/OverviewofHRSPublicData.pdf ORSP reviews draft contracts or other awarding documents and, if necessary, negotiates commercial terms acceptable to both parties.
