Conflicts of Interest
Oftentimes, it's the perception of a conflict that does the most harm. Having a written institutional policy, a mechanism to collect disclosures and formal management plans to mitigate conflicts is crucial. The potential damage to the reputation of all involved can be great... and long lasting.
We can guide you in setting up or reviewing your program, from disclosure to formal management plans.
Grant & Contract Management
Managing a grant or contract is time consuming! And if your institution doesn't process a high volume of these documents it can be even more time consuming to stop, re-read and refresh yourself on the applicable terms and conditions and then process the item.
With over 10 years of experience in drafting, reading, interpreting and negotiating contracts, we can assist with cradle to grave management of your contracts and grants so that you can focus on the rest of your work!

United States export laws are complex and include not only items that are physically shipped outside the U.S. borders, but are also items that are "released" to non-U.S. Persons who are inside the U.S. (a "deemed export"). Additionally, there are restrictions on doing business with designated parties who are debarred and/or restricted.
Let us use our expertise to help you see the potential high-risk areas in your business.
