Principal Investigator (PI) Authorization

When the University accepts a grant or contract from an external sponsor, the University assumes responsibility for the proper performance of the stated project, for the fiscal management of the funds received, and for accountability to the sponsor. Since the institutional responsibility for meeting these obligations is vested in the Principal Investigator, only individuals who are full time university employees and have the approval of their Dean are allowed to do research at the University.
