Policies and Procedures

Sponsored projects, by definition, require some degree of institutional oversight, which in turn requires a thorough understanding of University policies and procedures and how they complement, reinforce, and integrate with government regulations and sponsor requirements. There exists a  range of policies/procedures for requesting, accepting, and managing external funding and conducting sponsored projects. Please review and refer to the material in this section to ensure an understanding of the process at each stage of sponsored project administration.
