Responsibility for Sponsored Projects

February 21, 2020

Dear Principal Investigators,

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of important obligations associated with doing research and the acceptance of external funding. By accepting external funding, grantees agree to comply with the terms and conditions associated with the awards which is a shared responsibility of the principal investigators, departmental business offices and central offices.

Special terms and conditions may include such terms as:

  • Sponsor specific requirements for acknowledgement of funding in publications
  • Restrictions on expense categories or specific expenditures, i.e. equipment or salary
  • Restrictions on use of research subjects

Please be sure to review all terms and conditions found in the notice of award.

Any questions related to special terms or conditions can be addressed to the responsible award manager in the Office of Sponsored Projects.

Thank you,
Pam Caudill
