Reason for Policy

Georgia Tech encourages international collaborations. The International Contracts and Technology Transfer group within Corporate & International Contracting serves as the point of contact for all international sponsored projects. ICTT facilitates international collaborations and helps assure compliance with Georgia Institute of Technology policies, as well as state and federal rules, regulations, and laws.

Policy Statement

Projects are considered international when sponsored by a foreign government or by a private entity based in a foreign nation, regardless of where the work is to be performed. Examples of foreign sponsors are foreign governments and governmental agencies, foreign universities, non-U.S. domiciled companies (defined as a company legally organized and originally incorporated under the laws of a foreign country), and non-U.S. non-governmental organizations and foreign public charities.

Agreements with foreign sponsors will generally provide that English is the operative language, that advance payments are made, and that all payments are made in U.S. dollars.


This policy applies to all Georgia Tech Faculty and Staff.
