Terms of Use

SOSCIP’s general Terms of Use are available for your reference.

Project Collaboration Agreement and Access Fee

All projects approved for access to SOSCIP’s advanced computing platforms must sign a Project Collaboration Agreement (PCA) and pay a one-time access fee of $5,000 + HST prior to the start of the project. If a project is unable to proceed within 60 days of the date the PCA is signed, due to technical or other limitations, the parties may withdraw their statement of work and the fee will be refunded. Note that the fee may be an eligible expense under some funding programs; in-kind contributions are not eligible in lieu of the fee.
