CIB 99-19: Patent Rights and Reporting
Subject Category: Assistance, Miscellaneous
Note: The Standard Provisions for US and non-US NGOs have been incorporated into ADS 303. All other portions of this AAPD remain in effect as in the AAPD below.
This CIB transmits a contract clause and two assistance provisions to be included in awards involving experimental, developmental, or research work. (As used in this CIB, developmental work means the type of work under which something patentable might be invented.) The contract clause and one assistance provision provide guidance to the awardee on reporting patent information, including how to file using the reporting and tracking system developed by the National Institutes of Health.
The second assistance provision reinstates the Patent Rights provision that was previously a standard provision for assistance awards. We deleted the provision because OMB A-110 and Reg. 26 specify that 37 CFR Part 401 is applicable to assistance awards, but we have since decided that it will ensure better compliance with patent requirements if the provision remains a part of the award.
