Legal status of PACT

Legal status of PACT

PACT is not a legal entity, but a collaborative activity between the partner universities to establish and operate the national research facilities. PACT partners manage and operate the facilities under a joint agreement whereby each operator can act as a single point of contact for external users and other operators can be subcontracted under the PACT internal agreement. In accessing the facilities and services, documents such as contracts and collaborative and non-disclosure agreements can be optionally signed by one or a number of PACT university operators (not PACT itself).  

PACT Office acts a central point of contact for all PACT facilities, but the facilities can also be accessed via the individual operating partner contacts.
