Information and templates for UBMTA/Implementing Letters.
While the NIH SLA is recommended for transferring most materials, NIH guidelines recognized that if materials were patented, additional terms may be needed in an MTA to protect the rights of the providing institution in the materials. The UBMTA takes into account that the transferred material may be subject to patent protection and can be used for patented as well as unpatented materials. If both institutions are signatories to the UBMTA, one simply executes the implementing letter for each transfer. Non-signatories may sign the UBMTA Master Agreement and then use the Implementing Letter as a UBMTA signatory. Alternatively, non-signatories can use the AUTM MTA Templates, which are stand-alone contracts based on the UBMTA.
