What is an outside organization/external entity/non-UM entity?

Question: 
What is an outside organization/external entity/non-UM entity?
Answer: 

In general, an "outside organization" is any entity external to U-M, such as:

  • A company (for proft whether publicly traded or not, non-profit);
  • An institution, program, or society (academic, professional, or commercial, whether US-based or international)
  • U.S. government (federal, state, or local); or
  • A foreign institution, government, or company.

U-M applies exceptions for the disclosure of outside activities to some external entities.  See the Outside Activity Disclosure Guidance for details.
