Typically, contracts for ICPSR data are on an archive by archive basis. The contracts are substantially the same across the archives, but there are differences, particularly if the contract is not part of the new IDARs system. PSC holds contracts for CPES, HCMA, and NAJCD. The example on this page is an HCMA contract for the Community Tracking Study based on the new IDARS system. Here is a link to an older contract, which is still in use for some ICPSR studies.
