Forms & Agreements

Intellectual Property Disclosure Form

OHSU is not responsible for negotiating or reviewing consulting agreements on behalf of OHSU faculty and staff. The guidelines for consulting are covered in the Outside Activity/Outside Compensation portion of the Conflicts of Interest and Commitment policy

Faculty are also advised that personal consulting agreements may result in conflict of interest situations with their university employment and, as such, must be disclosed to their respective Department Chair for that determination and possible inclusion in a conflict of interest management plan.

We recommend adding the following statement to any consulting agreement that you negotiate:
"Consultant is an employee of Oregon Health & Science University and has responsibilities and research projects resulting from his/her activities as such an employee. Not withstanding any other provisions in this Agreement, the Company shall not have any rights to any work product, intellectual property and/or other works or materials created by Consultant as a result of employment with Oregon Health & Science University."
