Budgets, CDAs, DUAs, and MTAs


The PRO can assist with putting project budgets together. If you are applying for a grant, please contact the PRO manager, Ashley Servais, for assistance. Further, we’ve put together a presentation on developing a grant budget, that can be viewed or downloaded using the button to the right.

Confidential Disclosure Agreements (CDAs)

Industry-sponsored clinical trials often begin with a confidentiality agreement (CDA) that is negotiated between the sponsor and the investigator’s institution (UNMC). Our office works with UNeHealth on putting these in place.

Please contact Ashley Servais to discuss your study prior to signing a CDA.

Once a CDA is fully executed, the sponsor will share the study protocol and ask us to run a feasibility assessment. This allows both the site and the sponsor to determine if we are the correct place to run the study.

Data Use Agreements and Material Transfer Agreements

We can assist you with putting Data Use, Data Transfer, and Material Transfer agreements in place between CHMC/UNMC and your collaborators. We work with UNMC’s Sponsored Programs office and the legal office of Children’s Hospital and Medical Center.

For clinical studies, your IRB will often receive conditional approval, pending the execution of these documents, so it’s important to start this process early on in your study.
