Coming Dec. 7th: Encore of Bayh-Dole compliance workshop

The compliance requirements of the Bayh-Dole Act have been a fact of life for universities for the past 37 years, and it’s easy to fall into a sense of complacency, assuming that these well-establish rules are ingrained in the fabric of the institution. But in most cases, that’s a dangerous and most likely inaccurate assumption.

In fact, that is the conclusion of NIH officials, who have expressed increasing concern that many universities are not fully honoring their obligations to report inventions, provide confirmatory licenses, and submit utilization reports. Their alarm bells went off after their internal reviews noted a significant discrepancy between the number of grants awarded versus the number of subject inventions being reported.

Staff turnover, inadequate training, poor record keeping, and simple complacency all contribute to an alarming lack of compliance, and universities are being urged by both NIH and AUTM to redouble their compliance and auditing efforts. That’s why we’ve scheduled a special encore presentation of the critical webinar workshop, Bayh-Dole Compliance Check-up: Effectively Address the Challenge of Complacency, scheduled for this December 7.
