NCURA’s YouTube Tuesday

Today’s installment of NCURA’s YouTube Tuesday focuses on considerations that must be addressed when a PI accepts work as a direct consultant, and how these differ to those that arise when the PI’s efforts are covered in a more formal sponsored project agreement.  Even though consultants are technically working on their own behalf, their responsibilities and obligations may abut and even occasionally run contrary to those of the consultant’s employing institution.  Consequently, while not every ORA reviews faculty consulting agreements, it’s important that all PIs are, at the very least, educated with respect to their duties and encouraged to seek guidance if any questions arise.
