Managing your award
Welcome to STEP SIX of our Grant Life Cycle website: MANAGING YOUR AWARD!
When a researcher initiates a research project she/he MUST be aware of, and comply with, an array of federal, state and university regulations regarding a variety of issues such as research integrity; conflict of interest; and use of human subjects, vertebrate animals, biohazardous materials, radioactive materials and controlled substances. Other projects involve legal issues regarding intellectual property and patents. This section discusses some of these issues and provides guidance as to how to assure that a research project meets all reporting requirements.
First and foremost, there is a project to be completed based on the proposal which was awarded. The award document functions as the framework under which the project should be completed. It should identify the required reporting (technical and financial) outline the rules and guidelines that govern the project. It is incumbent on the PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR and their staff that they understand the agreement and execute the work under these guidelines.
