Ucop California Model Agreement

Posted by: In: Ikke kategoriseret 13 apr 2021 Comments: 0

The UC Office of the President (UCOP) has introduced a series of Indirect Cost Recovery Rates (IDCs) on california state funding, which is gradually increasing from 25% to 40% over 4.5 years. These rates are applied on an MTDC (modified Total Direct Cost) basis (as defined in the collective agreement negotiated by the Confederation for each UC campus). See UCOP Guidance Memo 17-07 (RPAC-17-07) for IDC Recovery Advice for Awards from California State Authorities. On November 2, 2015, the University of California (UC), the California State University System (CSU) and the California Department of General Services (DGS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on behalf of the public authorities to implement the standard model and standard conditions, including standard content requirements for contract proposals and awards. Law 20 (AB20) of the National Assembly asked the DGS and the CSU to negotiate the agreement. It is therefore commonly referred to as “AB20.” There may be some standard contractual provisions or exposure formats within the CMA, which the contracting parties mutually agree on, are insufficient or unsuitable for a given project. Parliament intends to use waivers only in unusual situations; However, Section 67327 (b) of the Education Code allows the parties to negotiate alternative terms and to grant exposures tailored to the needs of the parties for an agreement [see note 2]. This guide does not address the completion of contractual documents when other conditions and/or exposures are used by mutual agreement between the parties and has no regulatory or legal effect. If other conditions are used, the parties document them on Schedule G – Negotiated Alternate UTC. The California Model Agreement (CMA) provides standard terms of use by California state authorities, which fund research, training or service activities conducted by campuses of the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU).

The CMA`s goal is to reduce the administrative resources used by both state offices and universities to establish thousands of contracts and grants for major public works in California and California. Most U.S. government funds are processed through the Sponsored Projects Office (SPO). However, AB20 also regulates commercial campus contracts with the state. Therefore, if the university provides non-research-related services to a California state agency and does not produce original works or publications, the Office of Business Contracts and Brand Protection (BCBP) will process these agreements.
