Re: subcontracting with a Federal Agency Herbert B. Chermside 25 Apr 2000 08:57 EST

I also am having problems with getting federal funds (NASA) through the
University, to a federal lab/research unit (DOD/Navy).  They essentially
rejected our usual terms and conditions with flowdown of federal
requirements; they tried to insist we indemnify them (as a state agency we
are not allowed to do so), and most recently they have sent us a CRADA as a
model agreement (which I haven't had time to deal with)>

Anyone out there with any positive experiences?  Successes?  Even clues for
the clueless?
