A consulting contract may (a) be a letter (signed by a senior executive of the company or a non-profit organization and the faculty member); (b) a brief statement on advisory activities, signed by the faculty member and an officer of the business or non-profit organization; (c) a longer agreement signed by both the faculty member and a senior executive of the company or non-profit organization, or (d) an oral agreement. In the absence of a written consulting contract, COIAC may request the faculty member to obtain a written consulting contract specifying the type of consulting activity. The Interests Advisory Committee (COIAC) may review consulting contracts as part of its review of potential research-related conflicts of interest. . . .
