Consulting Agreements

The College of William and Mary is not a party to consulting agreements between William and Mary inventors and third party companies. That having been said, all consulting agreements must be consistent with College and departmental policies.

William and Mary faculty and staff who enter into consulting agreements should keep in mind the {{http://web.wm.edu/ip/docs/Policy%20on%20Financial%20Conflict%20of%20Interest.htm,Conflict of Interest Policies}} of the institution and the state. Please also be aware that contractual obligations to a third party do not override or circumvent an employee's obligations to the College, and thus all potential consulting agreements should be reviewed carefully to ensure that there is not a conflict between the various obligations.

Consulting services should not involve any use of funds, personnel, facilities, materials, or other resources of William and Mary other than the library and Consultant's office and personal computer.
