Samples Contracts and NDAs

All IP restrictions and guidelines are determined by the source of funding. A partial list of agreement templates is available for review. Each agreement is specific for the work effort being performed and deliverables being requested, whether it is a single project or long-term alliance where multiple task orders can be issued under a Master umbrella-type agreement. In addition, a Non-Disclosure Agreement template is also available for review to handle the protection of confidential information.
