Master Agreements

Master Agreements are agreements that embody agreed-upon terms and conditions of a basic relationship between the University and a sponsor.

Once a Master Agreement is in place, a “task work order” (TWO) is typically generated for each new project to be done under the Master Agreement. The TWO sets forth the items particular for a certain project such as dollar amount, research to be carried out, period of performance, specific deliverables and who the principal investigator for the TWO will be. These TWOs are governed by the terms and conditions of the Master Agreement. This alleviates the need to negotiate the main terms of the agreement, as the majority of the terms are agreed upon when the Master Agreement is executed and only the particulars terms that are specific for the task work order (generally programmatic and budgetary) need to be negotiated.

We currently have Master Agreements in place with the entities listed below. When dealing with the following sponsors, please inform them to use our Master Agreement.

Access to view the Master Agreement is limited to FIU employees who are credentialed via Active Directory.

Please note that any TWOs generated under these Master Agreements will require an ePRAF and all relevant compliance reviews that are required for any new project that is setup.
