Equipment purchased with externally-generated grant funds is considered the property of Davidson College. In general, only specialized items of equipment not suitable for use within the college may be transferred with an investigator to another institution. Exceptions to this policy are:
- Special agreements covering equipment transfers negotiated between Davidson College and the funding agency and/or the principal investigator or
- External agencies that maintain a “right of transfer or disposal” policy.
All costs associated with the transfer of equipment to another institution will be charged to the grant as a direct cost or be borne by the principal investigator.
