Contract Negotiation and Administration

2019 Contracting Workshop Dates:
December 4-6, 2019 ~ New Orleans, LA

This two and a half day intermediate-level workshop offers participants an opportunity to delve into the technical and complex issues associated with contract negotiation and management. The workshop will examine federal, industrial, clinical, international, and other types of contracting in the context of policy, process, and institutional culture.

The participants will engage in mock negotiations, role-play, and breakout sessions to cultivate their skills and expand their understanding of contract negotiation principles. Topics to be covered include contract types (e.g., non-disclosure agreements, materials transfer agreements, memoranda of understanding), contract clauses (e.g., intellectual property, indemnification, warranty), and applications of special issues (e.g., international human subjects research). Throughout the workshop, participants will be encouraged to develop negotiation strategies and techniques, while considering the practical and ethical dimensions of contract negotiation.

The next Contracting Workshop will be held in New Orleans, LA, December 4-6, 2019.
