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.
Effective July 1, 2018, all revenue generating agreements, as defined by FA 157, must be routed through GMS for review and invoicing. Please review the GMS Training website Revenue Generating Agreements Job Aid and attend a monthly training session. Next, 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 and complete and attach the GU Revenue Generating Agreement Transmittal Form to help expedite the review process in GMS.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding this process.
