Consulting Agreement

OTT provides services with the University Counsel’s office (UC) to review consulting agreements for TJU employees. A TJU employee, who wishes to provide work-for-hire, independent contractor consulting services to a third party entity, must (i) first notify UC and OTT, (ii) describe the scope and nature of the proposed consulting services, and (iii) confirm that the proposed services are not related to his or her ongoing research at TJU or similar work for any other entities.

In addition, the TJU employee must provide the third party entity with a copy of his or her existing TJU Assignment of Inventions Agreement. The original signed Assignment of Invention Agreement is filed at the Office of Research Administration (ORA).

Further, consulting activities must be conducted off campus, and must not use TJU resources or facilities (which include phones and computers) or any other TJU personnel. Any consulting compensation of $10,000 or greater must be reported to the University Conflict of Interest officer.
