Principal Investigator's Quick Reference Guide for Research Compliance

As a reminder, Research Administration is here to excel as a value-added partner in the UTMB research enterprise. We strive to facilitate the UTMB research mission, from funding identification through project completion, by: Providing research-specific resources and education; promoting the responsible conduct of research; and advising and assisting with administrative policies and regulations.

While awards are made to UTMB on behalf of the PI, the principal investigator (PI) is responsible for specific elements of the process: Providing the scientific direction of the research program; ensuring research is conducted ethically and in accordance with the award terms and conditions; and ensuring the proper financial stewardship of the research program, including the allowability, allocability and reasonableness of all expenditures.

This quick reference guide is intended to supplement the roles and responsibilities documents and policies.
