Government Contracts and Grants for Research. A Guide for Colleges and Universities.
The Federal Government and institutions of higher learning have become interdependent elements of the research structure. Colleges and universities cannot adequately support a high level of research activity with their own limited funds, and the government must rely on the obvious wealth of expertise on campus for the conduct of research required for national goals. Congress requires detailed accountability for Federal funds and, over time, a complex system has been developed by the government to provide it. This guide has been compiled to provide individuals dealing with funding agencies the background required to understand the nature of the relationship created and the consequences for the institutions. Sections cover: (1) characteristics and procedures of the research contracts with the Federal Government; (2) analysis of approximately 100 contract clauses developed for use in research contracts with the Federal Government; (3) background material on the development of the cost principles; (4) the policies and procedures of 43 private foundations and Volunteer Health Agencies; (5) three specimen agreements; (6) a large number of specimen contract clauses covering a broad range of topics; and (7) a glossary and alphabetical index.
