The Advocate General then reached an agreement with the insurer in July 2002, after retaining a new defence lawyer. According to the Tribunal, the July 2002 agreement “changed” the June 2002 agreement and was negotiated on behalf of the Advocate General by his new defence counsel. As part of the July 2002 agreement, the insurer agreed to pay the defence counsel`s fees without them being able to verify their suitability. The court found that defence counsel “in return” approved a particular budget, the payment plan and the limitation of total costs. The agreement stipulated that the insurer`s obligations remained subject to the terms of the D-O-Police and the insurer`s ongoing “legal reservations”. including the right to obtain from policyholders the cost of the defence advanced when it finally finds that there is no coverage in the framework of the police for criminal action. The insurer also agreed to pay the firm directly. The university offers rectors the opportunity to obtain temporary funding for projects that have not yet been allocated. The objective of this program is to enable the launch of new time-sensitive projects and existing projects by extending the expiry date, while premium documents are processed by the proponent. The Office of Contracts and Grants is committed to supporting the faculty`s research and has implemented the interim funding process to ensure that faculty members have access to the resources needed for timely research on funded projects.
Intermediate loan contracts are short-term loan contracts, which are established as a “bridge” until the full financing documentation is agreed upon. Submit a written application for interim funding to the Contracts and Grants Office. To do this, use the Interim Fund Request (DOC) form or include a memo containing the same information as requested on the form. The application must contain supporting documentation from the proponent indicating that the grant is being granted, as well as the detailed project budget. The department or university must ensure that all fees reserved for the intermediate funding unit must be reassigned to an unsan done project research station if the premium is not paid. Once the application has been approved, the Contracts and Grants Office establishes the corresponding cost centre and establishes a communication on interim funding. The notice indicates cost values, so expenses can be charged to support the research being conducted. Indirect costs are neither budgeted nor billed. The fee incurred will not be charged to the sponsor until we have received an official prize and the award has been made. Once the premium agreement is concluded, interim funding will be cancelled and the premium budget will be set up in the same cost centre to ensure a smooth transition in costing as the research project progresses. Intermediate funding is a temporary funding from the university to alleviate delays in the taking of sponsorship funds.
An intermediate-funded award provides the Principal Investigator (PI) with short-term funding in the same cost centre as the one used for the official price. The insurer first advanced the defence costs, subject to property reserve, to submit coverage and to require reimbursement of payments. Subsequently, there was a dispute over the insurer`s willingness to submit the defence costs and, in June and July 2002, the insurer entered into two reimbursement agreements for defence reimbursement contracts, one with the company and the other with one of the former officers charged. The June 2002 agreement between the insurer and the company provided that the insurer would advance the defence expense fund that the insurer “believes” … As part of the policy. Under the June 2002 agreement, the insurer also explicitly reserved “the right to determine whether [expenses incurred after February 28, 2002] are eligible.” Finally, the Tribunal rejected defence counsel`s arguments on the basis of a change in sola and stated:
