Explain how the partnership with the overall strategy of the Faculty/Institute and UQ is compatible with the country concerned and indicate with which other priority partners the Faculty/Institute has already concluded agreements. If you change the terms of a standard agreement, it is no longer standard and usually needs to be signed at a higher level. Standard agreements are pre-approved contracts that allow UQ employees to enter into fast contracts on reasonable terms. See the guidelines of the International Convention on The Types of Agreements. Additional consultation and approval is required for certain types of agreements. 2. Ensure that all agreements are informed and comply with Australian, foreign and international laws relevant to the business, including the Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme Act 2018, as well as export controls. You will find information on who can sign a standard agreement in the Delegation Directive [1.10.01] and in the delegation schedule (notification of staff required). If the agreement is related to the acceptance of a gift on behalf of the UQ, read the directive on delegations accepting gifts [1.10.04].
Use these agreements to ensure that confidential information is disclosed by uQ or UQ. Portfolio or divisional directors, Executive Deans and Directors of Research Institutes must follow this procedure, including in the exercise of their relevant receiving authorities with respect to the proposals and agreements of the International Agreement. For faculty institutes, the competent receiving authority is Executive Dean.
