Material Transfer Agreement System

Understanding Material Transfers

Material Transfer Requests and MTAs

The MTA On-Line Material Transfer Request System provides the electronic means to request the transfer of materials to or from campus.  The Material Transfer Request is routed through the department for necessary approvals and then submitted to the Office of Research and Economic Development (RED) for processing and final approval.   RED will subsequently review, negotiate (if necessary), and execute the MTA governing the terms and conditions of the transfer, and use, of the requested materials between the providing and recipient institutions.

Receipt of MTA and Shipment of Materials

The principal investigator associated with the Material Transfer Request will receive a copy of the MTA after it has been fully executed by RED.

To facilitate and arrange for the timely shipping of any outgoing materials, please provide a copy of the fully executed MTA to UCR Shipping.
