Academic-Industry Collaboration under Federal Grants and Cooperative Agreements: Financial, Administrative, and Regulatory Compliance
Ferreira, William F.
Research Management Review, v18 n1 p73-93 Spr-Sum 2011
Federal sponsorship of collaboration between academic institutions and industry is on the rise. Many government programs emphasize cooperation between universities and the commercial sector as a means to merge basic and applied research, promote economic development, and enhance knowledge dissemination. The intersection between academia and industry on federal research projects yields financial, administrative, and regulatory complexities related to cost accounting, program income, audits, equipment, transparency, the distinction between subawards and sub-contracts, and other items. This article discusses foundational compliance issues associated with participation of for-profit firms in grants and cooperative agreements. (Contains 59 endnotes.)
