As part of its effort to create a comprehensive, accessible and standardized collection of research-related policies, ORA is pleased to announce four new policies
- Sponsored Programs (Grants and Contracts) and Gifts: Definitions and Administration
- Cost Sharing on Sponsored Programs
- Underwriting Grants and Contracts
- Residual Income on Fixed Price Sponsored Programs
The new policies can be found on the Research Ethics, Education, and Policy (REEP) webpage, at http://researchadmin.iu.edu/policies.html.
Sponsored Programs (Grants and Contracts) and Gifts: Definitions and Administration, Cost Sharing on Sponsored Programs, and Underwriting Grants and Contracts do not introduce any significant changes from the policies and important notices that they replace.
There is, however, a significant change in Residual Income on Fixed Price Sponsored Programs. In this new version, funds not transferred within the required period of time will be moved to a centralized university account.
