Lab Testing Agreements (LTA)

Lab Testing Agreements (LTA) involve the P.I. testing a specific compound, device, or process for a sponsor. No data analysis will be performed by the principal investigator. Also no inventions should be anticipated.


To process your LTA, please provide the following:

  1. COP is needed.
  2. OSP usually provides standard template agreement. Should sponsor request to use their agreement, please send directly to
  3. Copy of Protocol or Statement of Work
  4. Provide the name, address, telephone number and email address of your company contact.

All lab testing agreements will bet set-up under PeopleSoft fund group 48006 (Legacy “T” account). A fully executed agreement from sponsor and the initial funds are needed for project/grant set-up. At the conclusion of the study principal investigator is allowed to keep the residual balance. Balance can be transferred to another 48002 project upon official request by principal investigator once the testing is completed.
