Only Commons users with the signing official (SO) role can edit the Institution Profile. An exception exists for institutions that have a TTO administrator but no signing official. For these institutions, the TTO administrator can edit all sections of the profile.

For institutions with both a signing official and TTO administrator, the TTO administrator can edit only the Extramural Technology Transfer Administration component.
