Question Title

* By completing STEP ONE: Center for Business and Industry Easy-Step Grant Application Assistance Agreement, you agree to use the Center for Business and Industry (CBI) at Worcester State University as the primary training provider for the grant requested training.  In consideration, the CBI agrees to provide our professional grant writing assistance, needs analysis, and administration free of charge.  CBI cannot guarantee that you will receive the grant, and wishes you to know that your company has no financial obligation to Worcester State’s Center for Business and Industry, if you are not approved for training grant funding, or if you withdraw your application before final submission of your grant application to the grant funding agency.  However, if your organization does receive approval for funding upon receiving our writing and/or needs assessment assistance on this application and then opts to replace us with a different training provider, or if you decide not to conduct the training upon being approved for funding, your organization agrees to pay the CBI 15% of the total amount awarded by the grant funding body based on our facilitation of a successful grant application, and/or needs analysis process.

By entering into this agreement, your organization also understands that the CBI will be the primary training provider responsible for delivering all training as contracted.  The CBI understands that if you have a preferred training vendor you prefer the CBI to use for delivery of all, or a portion, of the training, you may not negotiate with them separately, but will forward their contact information of this trainer, or training vendor, to the CBI for all necessary fee and contract negotiations.
