All user experiments must be run under the terms of a User Agreement executed by the appropriate institutional officer(s) at your institution and their counterpart at Stanford University. A single User Agreement covers all experimenters from that institution. Collaborators who are not coming to SSRL do not require a User Agreement. These signed agreements must be on completed and on file at SSRL prior to your experimental run.
The Department of Energy has implemented standard user agreements for Non-Proprietary Research (add link to agreement) and for Proprietary Research (add link to text below). Only minor modifications to the terms of the agreements may be made by the user institution or CONTRACTOR. Substantive changes require approval by the DOE Contracting Officer which will likely delay user access to the user facility. In instances where DOE Contracting Officer approval for substantive changes cannot be obtained, Work for Others (WFOs) and Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) may be more appropriate due to the increased flexibility such agreements afford.
To verify whether or not a current user agreement is in place between your institution and Stanford University, please contact or call 650-926-3011.
