Office of Industry Contracts
The Office of Industry Contracts (OIC) has been created to support faculty, staff and students in their pursuit of research funding from private industry. The OIC reviews all sponsored research proposals to private industry, negotiates contract terms and conditions, and works with Clemson researchers and industry partners to ensure that agreements are in accord with university policies and procedures as well as federal regulations and requirements.
The OIC is available to answer questions, review and negotiate contracts with private industry, and otherwise assist researchers in securing private funding support.
If you are submitting a sponsored research proposal to a company, rather than completing the Agreement Request Form, submit your proposal/budget through your college’s Office of Sponsored Programs Pre-Award Support Center (OSP-SC). That office will contact the OIC if needed.
