Multiple Partners offices review and execute research agreements on behalf of the Partners hospitals, and issue outgoing research agreements to all types of entities. The offices are identified bel ow with a brief summary of the agreement types reviewed and services provided by each.
Only authorized signatories, a Partners official or an SVP of research for the applicable hospital, have the authority to execute research agreements on behalf of the hospitals. Principals Investigators are not authorized as institutional signing officials.
PIs and their Department Administrators must complete and submit all routing documents and electronic records to Partners before an incoming agreement will be reviewed or an outgoing agreement will be drafted.
In the event an agreement falls within the scope of responsibilities of multiple offices, one office will take the lead and work with the others to find the appropriate home.
