* If an agency is listed as "INACTIVE", your previously reported inventions reported to that agency will remain in iEdison.  However, you will be unable to report any new subject inventions or patents to that agency in Edison and you will be unable to update any existing iEdison records (they will be in read-only status).  If one or all of your funding agencies are not active in iEdison, you should contact that agency(ies) to determine how they want you to fulfill your Bayh-Dole related reporting obligations.  If that agency becomes "ACTIVE" in iEdison again in the future, the records will be set to their previous status and you will be able to edit and report new subject inventions and patents as normal.
