Resources for Government
- Hold a seat on the Industry Advisory Board (IAB);
- Vote on the IUCRC research portfolio;
- Define, direct and fund the research portfolio and monitor research progress; and,
- Determine how a center is governed by developing and approving center bylaws.
IUCRC members do not perform research. Per the Bayh-Dole Act (P.L. 96-517, Patent and Trademark Act Amendments of 1980), federal government entities retain a non-exclusive license.
BECOME A MEMBER
- Use the IUCRC Directory to search for active centers and relevant center personnel.
- Contact the IUCRC center director to determine:
- Membership fee;
- Governance of the center as spelled out in the center bylaws; and
- The research focus of the center.
- Use one of the following three methods to become an IUCRC member:
Option 1: Signing the membership agreement with the indemnification clause K for governmental entities.
Option 2: Filing form 1449 "Solicitation/Contract/Order for Commercial Items" where "Schedule of supplies/services" is limited to the rights and responsibilities of members in IUCRC. See an example of form 1449 for IUCRC membership.
Option 3: Transferring the IUCRC membership fees via the NSF through an Interagency Agreement (IAA) or Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request (MIPR). NSF is authorized to deduct 6.68% (based on the total transaction) for administrative cost recovery for FY 2020 until further notice. See instructions for processing IAA and MIPR.
The NSF IUCRC Interagency Team (email@example.com) is available to help process Interagency Agreements (IAAs) or Military Interdepartmental Purchase Requests (MIPRs). All other questions must be directed to the IUCRC center director and the university's administrative offices.
