What issues should I consider in situations that are not covered by a joint appointment?

The current recommendation is that these support staff sign the Risk and Release form.  OTD’s preference is that these individuals would also sign the Visitor’s IP Agreement; however, many of the institutions with whom we execute billing agreements would not be willing to sign off on the Visitor’s IP Agreement for their staff.  Thus, if there is the potential that the individual will be involved in the development of IP in the course of the project, a subaward agreement should be used in place of a billing agreement.
