How do I initiate an agreement?

To initiate an agreement, please log-in to eAgreements with your University username and password. The first step is to complete the eAgreement Smart Form. No matter which agreement you are initiating, the user will start with the same first two pages of the Smart Form. The Smart Form is brief; however, more detailed questions are generated by the Smart Form as you respond to the basic questions.

What agreement do I need?

The Contracts and Agreements Pathfinder (CAP) is a tool created by UT Southwestern that allows users to work through a flow chart to accurately identify the appropriate system and agreement type for their research. Pathfinder (CAP) will be connected with eAgreements for ease of access to the appropriate forms to initiate an agreement. Pathfinder (CAP) may be accessed by UT Southwestern employees only via the Intranet.
