Model Location Release and License

External Media, Filming, Photography, and Press Activity

The SLAC Office of Communications is responsible for all coordination of third-party media, filming, photography, and press activity. The External Communications Manager, Andrew Gordon, must approve any such activity in advance.

If such activity is approved, then prior to allowing a third-party access to the SLAC site, the applicable attached Location Release must be executed and copies provided to the External Communications Manager. Any deviation from these forms must be reviewed by SLAC Legal on a case-by-case basis, and may cause disruption or delay of the planned activity. Please ensure there is sufficient time for such review.

Applicable Forms


Model Vendor Demonstration Acknowledgment

On-Site Vendor Demonstration

To the extent an industry partner or vendor is interested in demonstrating or displaying its products or services at SLAC for the purpose of potentially entering into a business relationship with the University in the future, the industry partner or vendor must provide an executed Vendor Demonstration Acknowledgment. For example, the following types of goods or services may require demonstration acknowledgments:

  • IT hardware or software
  • Software as a service applications
  • Scientific equipment
  • Transportation vehicles
  • Special use equipment

The affected SLAC staff group should generally coordinate the product demonstration with their assigned procurement specialist in the supply chain management organization. Acknowledgments (1) deviating from the attached template, (2) involving risks to SLAC’s infrastructure, property, or personnel, OR (3) extending to a duration beyond two years must be approved by SLAC legal counsel. Please ensure there is sufficient time for review or the activity may be delayed. 

All executed Vendor Demonstration Acknowledgments must be provided to Kam-Oi Shew, SLAC Legal, at kamoi@slac.stanford.edu
