What is it?
UT Research Management Suite – Agreements will be the portal used to submit, review, manage, and report on all research contracts (funded and non-funded) at UT Austin.
Why do we need it?
The Agreements module will vastly streamline the submission, review, approvals process, and management of contracts in an easy-to-use one-stop system that will integrate fully with the other components of the UT Research Management Suite. Reporting capabilities of the new module are robust and will help departments, colleges, and central offices get a better picture of our institutional partnerships with sponsors. Contracts origination, routing, and approvals will become a much more efficient and transparent process for PIs.
When will it be available?
The Non-funded Agreements module rolled out to central offices, investigators, and departmental users in Spring 2020. Funded Agreements will launch in Summer 2021.
UT Research Management Suite – Agreements is Live! All new research agreements must be submitted through the Agreements Module. Please continue to submit all non-research and procurement/services agreements to the Business Contracts Office.
