Georgetown University generates revenue through educational services, sponsored research, gifts, donations, and various service agreements. In this section, you will find guidance regarding:
- Types of Revenue
- Revenue Receiving Methods
- Revenue Generating Agreements
- Agreements involving Intellectual Property
- Collecting Sales Tax
- Unrelated Business Income
Prior to considering any revenue activities, we ask that you read the Revenue Generating Agreement Policy and review the GU Revenue Generating Agreement Transmittal Form, which can be found in the Policies section of this website.
For revenue generating agreements routed through GMS for review and invoicing, you will need a Customer ID (CUS-XXXXX). Requests for a GMS Customer ID may only be made by GU employees. Customer ID requests and updates are made via the Georgetown University Customer Request Form.
To expedite the GMS contract approval process, we recommend that you use the Revenue Generating Contract template.
At this time, please ask that customers do not send DocuSign signature requests directly to the University. They should select the paper option to allow for the University's internal review process. Please e-mail email@example.com with any questions regarding this process.
