License Instructions

Completing the IES Restricted-use License

Each application must have the support of a Senior Official (SO) who has the legal authority to sign the License (contract) on behalf of the institution or organization to bind the organization to the terms of the License. To find out who your SO would be, contact your grant/contract office or sponsored project office.

You may enter all of the required information into a .pdf version of the License document and print it out. To complete the License agreement, the License signature page must be signed by the PPO and SO and the original, complete License must be sent to the IES Data Security Office for processing and approval.

Do not print the License document double-sided.
