Contract and Agreements

Any research-related contracts and agreements with external organisations must be approved by the Research Policy and Contracts Team (RPCT) to ensure they are acceptable to both you and the University. Where appropriate, these contracts are reviewed and drafted by the Research Office Legal Team within the General Counsel.

Contracts may relate to funding, non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements, data sharing and material transfer arrangements.

Only the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) or his delegate is authorised to sign research contracts or agreements on behalf of Macquarie University.

If you require guidance regarding contracts, contact researchcontracts@mq.edu.au or your faculty research office.
