Therefore, the external parties forward their funds to CIHR and CIHR then distributes the funds to the recipients. The external parties in this agreement may be any other organization except for a federal government department or agency. A cost-sharing agreement is also used for establishing a collaboration for an external activity jointly planned by CIHR and an external party. In this case, each party will be responsible for disbursing specific costs related to the external activity and will each receive the respective invoices. Therefore, each party is responsible for administrating its own funds. The external parties in this agreement may be any other organization except for a federal government department or agency. Lastly, a cost-sharing agreement is used to establish a relationship with an external party where the parties will provide in-kind contributions to the collaboration.
