Award Spending

Primary responsibility for technical and fiscal management of any project begins with the Principal Investigator. The PI is responsible for assuring all approved expenses in support of a project are properly charged to it.

The issuance of the project number is a form of credit line against which the Principal Investigator may charge obligations and expenditures without concern for sponsor payments and cash flow considerations. Spending is to follow applicable sponsored funds rules and regulations and be allowable, allocable, reasonable, and consistent.
