Do you want to receive materials? (Incoming MTA)
1. If you wish to receive research materials from an academic, non-profit, or commercial institution, contact that institution and request that they send a MTA to you. It is most convenient if they send the MTA by email, as a Microsoft Word document. If they request a research plan, mark your research plan "Confidential."
2. Once you have received the MTA, submit it to the GCA MTA Team as detailed below.
3. Fill out the MTA Questionnaire below to provide initial background information that we need to review and evaluate the terms of the MTA.
4. We will review the MTA and, if necessary, negotiate the terms with the provider. When the MTA terms are acceptable to Yale, we will ask you to read the MTA and to acknowledge your responsibilities and obligations. Yale's authorized signatory will sign the MTA, and we will send required versions of the MTA to the provider. When we have all required signatures ("fully executed"), we will email a PDF copy of the MTA to you for your files.
HOW TO SUBMIT A MTA TO THE MTA TEAM:
a) If you only have a paper copy: make a copy for your files, and send all originals plus any cover letter and other paperwork to our office. Alternately, you may fax (or email a scanned PDF to MTAs@yale.edu) one copy of the MTA, plus the provider's cover letter, to 203-785-4169, Attention MTA Team.
b) If you have a digital (electronic) copy: Forward the entire email, along with the MTA attachment, to MTAs@yale.edu. It is not necessary to print and sign the MTA until we contact you.
c) Also, please fill out the following form completely and click on "submit" at the end of the form:
