Briefings for Principal Investigators and Project Staff

Prior to undertaking any sponsored project, it is important that all principal investigators understand the administrative requirements of the award. It can be useful for principal investigators, especially those who have never managed a sponsored project, and their staff to meet with the sponsored program officer to discuss the administrative aspects of the award.

Meeting Sponsor Requirements

The Office of Sponsored Program’s procedures and systems are designed to help principal investigators comply with a variety of sponsor rules and regulations in a consistent manner. Sponsor requirements are documented either in the award agreement itself or in the sponsor’s policy documents, many of which are available on sponsors’ web pages. Sponsored program officers can provide additional guidance, copies of award documents, and details of sponsor rules and regulations.
