About incoming service agreements

Service agreements are contracts between UC San Diego and a (non-federal) client where the client will pay UC San Diego to conduct services, where the service will not result in the development or enhancement of any intellectual property.

"Incoming" refers to the flow of funds, meaning that UC San Diego will be paid for conducting routine services, procedures, or testing.

Examples include:

  • Routine statistical analysis for a pharmaceutical company
  • Cloud storage services at San Diego Supercomputer Center
  • Testing a piece of equipment on the Shake Table at UCSD's Structural Engineering Department

Only your designated UC San Diego contract officers are authorized to sign agreements binding the University. The requesting PI's department will determine which office handles your incoming service agreement.
