4 The remaining part of the contract is protected in the event of a transfer. He may decide to completely lighten the burden on the ceding. It will only accept such a complete and definitive transmission if it is sure that the agent is as reliable and solvent as the assignee. The remaining party may also decide to retain the assignee as a subsidiary if the purchaser does not act. The remaining part may also choose to make the seller jointly liable with the purchaser. In the latter case, the other party may assert its rights either against the ceding party or against the purchaser. If the other party receives the transferor`s benefit, the transferor would be entitled to the purchaser`s refund. If you plan to provide material to an external party, a written MTA is essential. Please fill out the form below and send it to the contract team.
We are preparing the most appropriate form of MTA. (a) Contracting parties may agree to transfer the rights and obligations of the transferor under the contract with the person who remains a party to this contract (“the other party”) to another person (the “ceding” person); If you plan to obtain incoming material from outside the university, the external organization should provide an MTA so that the university can accept the terms of the agreement. Often, the supplier only supplies the materials when these conditions have been accepted. If you receive an MTA, don`t sign it yourself. It must be approved by the contract team on behalf of the university. Please fill out the form below and send it to the contract team. For simple transfers without intellectual property, the NIH recommends a simple matching agreement. For materials that can be patented or for which increased protection is desired, the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA) can be used.
