NIH MTA Templates

Use a Template

If an MTA is needed, choose the simplest standard agreement that will accomplish the transfer. In 1999, the NIH published the Simple Letter MTA template, and has recommended it for the transfer of many types of materials. It is accepted by almost all universities. The NIH also has two other simple MTAs for different classes of materials: living organisms and human tissues and specimens.
