The University of Minnesota is accountable to the public in fulfillment of its tripartite mission of teaching, research, and public outreach. Scrutiny is heightened when external funding is used to support any of these goals.
When the University accepts funds from an external source for a specific project, we must use those funds prudently and diligently. There are specific guidelines for obtaining, spending, and reporting on these monies.
In your role as Principal Investigator, you are responsible for all aspects of a project: the proposal, the investigation and scholarship, the management, and final reporting.
In this course, we will focus on the fiscal management responsibilities of a Principle Investigator during a project.
This course will outline the regulations and policies, provide examplesand case studies, and highlight resources for fiscal management of sponsored projects.
