Contracts Donna A. DeLuca 08 Jul 2005 10:49 EST

Some of our researchers perform sample testing for public and private
agencies.  As a rule, we require a contract in order to perform this work.
In the event that the work is not going to lead to publication or has no
chance of invention, we are considering forgoing the contract.  Do you see
any potential problems or issues with not having a contract (other than the
IRS regs, which as a not for profit organization, we've already taken under

Also, I'm curious how other research institutions handle this type of work.
Any sample contracts, for this type of work, that you're willing to share?

Thank you,
