Once the review panel agrees you can recruit an executive, your university’s technology transfer team will work with Newcastle University procurement support to develop and issue tender documentation to all candidates in the executive pool.
This Invitation to Tender (ITT) will include a role description for the executive. This will typically form the basis for the evaluation of responses from the perspective of quality, with the remainder of the evaluation focussing on price.
Following selection of an executive the technology transfer representative will lead contracting between their institution and the executive.
All approvals for an executive will also automatically trigger an option to access an Innovation Assessment.
