Confidentiality Agreement Template
The Confidentiality Agreement template was developed and endorsed in 2014 by the Data Governance Steering Committee, consisting of the leadership from the Office of the Executive Vice President, Office of General Counsel, Office of Human Resources, Office of Information Technology, Office of Finance and Treasury, Office of Audit and Compliance, Office of the Dean of the Faculty, and Office of the Registrar. The template is provided as guidance for departmental use to safeguard sensitive and confidential University information properly.
Although University employees are not required to sign this agreement, the Committee strongly encourages each department to consider adopting this agreement, as appropriate, and developing an internal process for staff members to attest to it, both when hired and on a regular annual basis. If this Agreement does not exactly meet specific departmental needs, managers should discuss modifications with the Office of General Counsel.
