Learn how to request a UCSD-Provided Service Agreement for a non-research project where a client will pay UCSD for services.

About incoming service agreements

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

"Incoming" refers to the flow of funds - in the context of an incoming service agreement at UC San Diego, the UCSD PI 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
