Partners Engaged in Extramural Reporting
Lack of adequate staffing, inadequate training, costs of reporting and compliance, and many other
factors are often cited as barriers to Bayh-Dole reporting compliance. Many technology transfer
professionals are given responsibility for Bayh-Dole compliance, but are not given any tools to
understand how to achieve it. These professionals, who often have no colleagues within their
organization to train them, are often left with trying to self-educate, are baffled by the process, and are
potentially (and unknowingly) putting their institution’s intellectual property at risk.
